1988 Carb rebuild question

I've owned an 88 wing for two years now, 51K on the odometer. It has the infamous off idle hesitation so I decided to pull the carbs and rebuild them. The numerous posts for this problem have my head spinning so am going with a 158 primary and 60 secondary (only 50 and 60 in the kit), 2 turns out for the pilot screw (removed the stop on the float bowl to facilitate adjustment). I've done a complete cleaning and my question is should I use any kind of gasket sealer on the float bowl O ring and if so what is recommended? Seems like there was some kind of "goo" on it before.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks, Happy Fathers Day to you all.
