I'm reattaching the alternator/ stator cover with a new Rick's paper gasket. Does anyone know if I should use a liquid gasket sealer like Permatex to treat both sides of the paper gasket or do I just install the gasket as it is?

I cant speak for your specific application but usually you'd use a gasket OR a sealer like permatex. Some times it helps assembly to put a few dabs of sealer on one side of a paper/rubber/cork gasket to keep it attached to one of the parts while you get the first few bolts in.

No gasket sealer needed, the gasket itself will seal fine.

Thanks. I already installed the gasket without using a sealer. It holds perfectly.
