Top timing cover

So im about to get a DOHC s13 hatch. The owner told me he changed the front.cover and in the process broke the head gasket. Would it be possible for me to just RTV that section? I dont wanna have to pull the head on a fresh motor.

An idea of mine was to cut that section off an old head gasket and then silicone that on. i was told that might work. so before i go tearing it apart i may try that haha

You will do more harm than good if silicone goes through the motor.

I'd give it a shot. It won't hurt anything if you're careful.
