Default What sealant for case gasket ?

I have a craftsman gt 5000 with a Briggs 22 hp ELS that is leaking oil
pretty bad right in front of the oil filter. From what ive read here.. that
is pretty common for this engine. When I replace the sump gasket, what
gasket sealer would be best ? I was thinking about permatex black silicone,
but I wanna hear from the more experienced. Thanks!

Ultra Black or Ultra Grey are probably best. Red is old technology. The permatex rep told me when in doubt use Grey.

Loc-Tite supplies a grey sealer (Perma-Bond?) which they claim meets all J** auto manufacturers' specs. It's all I buy anymore, all grins so far.
