Techs: Diff cover sealant of choice?

I was reading the FSM and they are calling for a "clear silicone sealant" part number TA-32 for diff cover sealant. When I popped it the original time it had GRAY sealant on it. I was on motorcraft's website and they have the TA-32... and then I found TA-29, which is a HD gray sealant that is for axle covers and such also. Sounds like from the factory it came with TA-29, but the FSM is calling for TA-32. What do you guys at the dealers prefer?

Use the GRAY goop as it's affectionatly called. You won't have ANY leak problems like you might with that clear crap. It's tough as hell to remove, but it's the SH!T. PERIOD!

Yeah don't use the clear, the black rtv is what I have used on all my trucks and suv's. It has excellent sealing and adhesion properties. I'm not a tech by any means but I hope that still helps.

10-4. Gray Goop. should be ford # TA-29. Yes, it is hard to remove... as a temporary rtv i used the permatex blk. but I prefer to use the gray stuff that came from the factory.... that was a job to remove!!!

It's black, very tacky and is called "The Right Stuff"
Works great for all kinds of stuff, pan gasket substitute, diff covers, water pumps, you name it!
Paticulary it sticks like crazy, even to areas you might have missd some oil.
