Front bearing retainer - Permatex RTV OK?

As with many others, my TOB failed causing me to do a full clutch replacement and also replace my front bearing retainer that is damaged by the faulty TOB (70000mi)

Question: The manual recommends specific Toyota 1281 sealant on the front bearing retainer and specific thread locking compound as well that was green from the factory. Can I just get away with Permatex High Temp red RTV silicon and my standard blue loctite?

Lots of labor hours here so donít wanna cut corners...

Any updates on this? Did you end up using RTV and loctite blue?

Don't use red RTV and blue thread locker

If you are going to use RTV for the front cover use ultra grey, though preferably just get the right shit. You need to use green loctite where it calls out for it. Others will not work. Green needs the surface cleaned well before applied.
