At the most, Edelbrock Gaskacinch (which is the inflammable contact cement), or a spray on contact cement such as Permatex. Many of the RTV/silicones are dissolved by petroleum products unless it specifically states it's good. Timing covers, fuel pump gaskets, water pump gaskets and timing cover gaskets, if premium quality don't really need any sealant. Intake gaskets - you need to follow the gasket manufacturer's instructions as to what and if they need a sealant. Some do say what to use, others, none is needed. Valley covers/manifold ends=the red will work fine.

I use the black silicone for almost everything now.I hope someday theyll improve the cap that seams to split right in the middle,then you have a nice dry plug youll have to dig out.
