Hi Phil

It would be a much better idea to fit a gasket,than a sealer,if were talking generator case here.A gasket will cost about £10 a tube of sealer will cost a£5,if you put a thin smear of grease on the gasket before you fit it,you will be able to remove and refit the casing a couple of times before you need a new one again(if you ever need to remove it again?probably not)Good Luck
