I've used Toyota FIPG (form in place gasket) on several things that I didn't have a gasket for; I've never had them leak yet. It doesn't smell like RTV but it definitely has some silicone in it.

I made 1/2 dozen of those a few years ago and used two. One in my B-673ST, and the other on my B-61ST. Don't know what I did with the balance but I'll let you know if I see them in the next few days. They are cork/neoprene which I cut from sheet and punched the holes. I have the tools to do this work but it's a slow process by hand.....

Gray "Permatex" works very well against oil for a seal but it's hard to pry apart later.

Make sure both pieces are as flat as possible; I always use flat file if can; I always wipe rtv down with my finger & make sure you have just enough for contact. Lots of people put big beads that are unnecessary & it bubbles up all around. I would use your gasket too. If it’s out of good material.
