[TR] TR2/3 A type OD question

In rebuilding my engine I found that the timing chain cover was a bit misshapen and I couldn’t get a good seal.  I resorted to Permatex Right Stuff.  It fills irregularities, assembles with no wait time, and does not leave the “scabs" that most silicone sealers produce that can slough off and block critical engine passages. I’ve pretty much used it to replace any gaskets I don’t have handy on parts assembly and use a thin coat on each side of the gaskets I do have.  It’s one drawback is that it is pricey.
