The rubber gasket should be ok to reuse unless it was glued on previously and ripped when taken off . If you just want them to stick in place on the covers to install , I would use silicone sealant in minamal amounts .

I always recommend Honda UltraFlange sealant, it's great stuff. It's also available as Permatex UltraGray from most parts houses. It's what Honda & Nissan use on everything for their newer cars. Also, it's gray, so if it squishes a bit it's less noticeable than the red, blue, and black goops.

I re-used my originals for about 200,000 miles when they started to leak a little. The rtv blue gasketmaker does help. I eventually bought new gaskets at partsnmore.com for $12 each.

As long as they are still pliable and have no cracks, they should be fine. Honda recommends gasket sealer around the cam ends. If I'm re-using a gasket, I like to use a little blue RTV all over, just to make sure.
