Yes you can, but be very wary of the cheap knock offs their flange is too thin and when you tighten down on them they leak. A high quality O ring water neck will have a flange of at least 3/8". FWIW, do noy buy a Mr. Gasket one.

Yes but you need to be careful when tightening the mounting bolts. The O ring style allows the bolt ears to be pulled down which will bend if not break them, so use caution. You can cut the ears from a gasket and place them between the parts under the bolts which will help keep you from pulling the casting's ears down too far.
