Gasket substitute?

Due to scheduling circumstances, I can only get to replacing my timing belts next week and the 2 gaskets that I ordered for the covers are delayed in shipment. Has anyone had success with using a product like Formagasket or anything else that won't end up gluing the parts together so I will damage the covers when I try to take them off again?

I didn't replace my cover gaskets on the last belt change but did put a coating of Gasgacinch on them.

Gasgacinch Gasket Sealer and Belt Dressing provides unmatched gasket sealing properties, preventing leaks, reducing expensive repairs, and creates a superior grip as a belt dressing
Gasgacinch Gasket Sealer remains flexible and makes it easier to assemble and disassemble an engine or transmission, often any residue may be removed simply by rubbing it away
Adheres to carbon steel, alloy steel, aluminum, titanium, lead, magnesium, synthetic and natural rubber, copper and cork, and may be used in hot, cold, wet, dry, acid, basic, and abrasive environments
When cured, Gasgacinch is flexible, has high-peel strength, high-shear strength, fatigue resistant, vibration dampening, high heat resistance, gasoline resistant, and oil resistant
Preferred in nearly all mechanical industries including: auto repair, diesel and truck repair, high-performance engine builders, motorcycle repair and many more

The timing cover gaskets do not need to seal anything but keep the bugs out, just put them on and don't worry about it.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

Gasgacinch is good stuff. Strong enough to lift an iron small block chevy. I would absolutely not put it on anything that you didn't want to leave together forever.

I just don't want any crap getting inside the covers that could mess up the timing belts.

Gasgacinch is like weatherstriping glue, except it is meant to use on gaskets. Just dab it on lightly on both the part and the gasket let dry and install. It will not glue it permanently.
