Default Timing chain/oil pan gasket

I've got a 2000 ls and being broke I took on the leaking timing chain cover replacement and might as well fix the leaking oil pan while it's apart right? Got everything cleaned up and ready to reassemble and was thinking I should put the timing cover on first since you need to put sealant on the gasket where it joins to timing cover. Is this correct and/or thaought? Have manual and all data but they just have the process sepersepar not together. PSA it's not a very fun job for the novice but the shop labor was way out of my price range. Thanks

Putting silicone on the timing cover gasket is perfectly fine.Glad you're saving the money doing it yourself, probably can use money somewhere else. Good luck
