The old time Gasgacinch (I think that is how it was spelled) was yellow, kind of like 3M weatherstrip glue. I think the Permatex should work ok, just don't overdo it. Watch for the gasket extruding while you torque it down. If it does, use something else.

The stock gaskets should fit in the grove and stay in place. You shouldn't need anything to hold them in place.

Well in the instructions it specifically says to use gasket cinch. I think that is used to keep it in place but it is also a sealant as well.

If that's the case then if you can't find any I woud use a dab of black silicone. There's no fuel going through there, just air.

I believe the gasket cinch is merely to hold the gasket in place while you place the SC unit on the manifold. As mentioned, there is no fluid only air at this gasket connection.
