Never use RTV there, it is useless with the pressure on the servo cover.

I have never seen a snap ring in place when a cover blows off the 2-4 servo cover. I'd replace the cover and snap ring.

Although..... TransGo used to offer in his kits a thinner snap ring to allow the servo cover to move out slightly to increase band clearance. In my opinion That was a bad Idea from TransGo and that perhaps is the problem here?

Dont worry how old you are... it is the mileage on your body that adds up.
