I just did this service.  I didn’t use anything like that.  I used never seize mixed with some oil . Even done my airheads in the past. This way never. And issue a thin flim of rtv. To seal the rubber thing ..... I’ve used this mix from heavy equipment to cars to bikes with out problems or issues that mix will be there for a very long time.

Just to check, by rtv do you mean 738 Silicone that we used to stop high voltage leaks on TV triplers?
