AMC 360 Intake Manifold gasket w/aluminum intake

Black Betty (AMC 360) has a seeping oil leak fore and aft at the Edelbrock aluminum intake manifold. Mindful of the hatchet job the P.O. did on other elements of this old CJ I'm dubious.
Back in the days I ran SBC's in my old Malibu I recall that the Edelbrock manifolds would leak terribly unless, when installing one discarded the rear seal and used a bead of Blue RTV in it's place.
1. Is this the nature of Edelbrock manifolds? or just of Chevy small blocks?

Went down to our local NAPA and they pulled a NAPA made by Fel Pro MS96011 intake gasket manifold and this thing had a windage tray incorporated into it. In addition, the specification called for an Edelbrock 7213 to be used with this Fel Pro gasket. Taking the number down and doing a google search I found that the Edelbrock 7231 is just the intake runner manifold gasket.
2. How are these two items incorporated together on the AMC 360?

HAH! An Edelbrock techie on the phone said use the Fel Pro gasket and pitch the wall gaskets and use RTV I'm hoping I'm on the right track, but there's still time for opinions as this will be this winter's project.

What did you end up using and how has the seal held up?

Most people ditch the end seals, unless the seal has some type of positive retainers to keep it in place (these dont unless something changed). The biggest problem is they dont have bolts going through them or clips holding them in place so they move around or work themselves out. I always use silicone, I recommend "ultra" either gray or black, most silicones will work I guess but I would at least get and ultra type.

Let it set up for just a few minutes. Seems to work for me.

I rather liked the Gaskacinch I used around the water and fuel ports, held the danged aluminum tray in place.
