When i put on a timing cover gasket about a yr and a half ago, I cant remember rather I put silicone under the metal gasket or not. Today when I was cleaning the front of the pan where the TC meets, I noticed a gray silicone gasket formed the shape of the metal gasket and was wondering rather that is a factory silicone gasket that needs to just be cut and more permatex put under as well as on top or just leave that one under there? I would think to juust cut it and put a fresh bead under but just asking to make sure sure View attachment 119874
