Never had a problem with just the good quality black or orange sealer in a tube, the orange or red is usually high heat, not really necessary. Also Great Stuff, if you can find it works awesome too!

I agree, great stuff is actually that.  If your using a paper gasket I'd use some Permatex Ultra Black on both sides of it.  JUST A THIN SMEAR on each side.  No need for it to squeeze out and make a mess.

If you dont want to use a paper gasket, then I would use some Ultra Black.  Run a bead around the perimeter and around each bolt hole.  Let it set up the required time and put your cover on.

If your putting on a girdle style cover then no gasket at all.  Just some Ultra Black all around.  Like the pic below.

I thought Great Stuff is the insulating foam you use around the house...
Do you mean the sealant Permatex gasket maker called the Right Stuff?

Well, it's a closed cell foam, so it would probably work. Messy, though. Smile
