I'm putting on my timing cover after replacing the cylinder heads on my 2004 Dodge Ram 1500 4.7 lite SLT pickup. I purchased my timeing cover gasket and found the new gasket set does not have the main steal gasket with the orange gasket inlaid into it. I've been told you use the RTV silicone gasket material with the old gasket, and have also been told you take the old gasket off and use the RTV in place of old gasket & replace the 2 smaller circle gaskets and trianglular one that came with the gasket set. Does anyone know the proper way to replace the Timeing cover gasket? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
