Default Correct sealant for Cylinder Head Front Cover on T1N?

I don't see the service manual listing the correct sealant here, only stating:

INSTALLATION - CYLINDER HEAD FRONT COVER
NOTE: Thoroughly clean all mating surfaces with appropriate solvents to assure that no grease or oil is present during reassembly.
NOTE: Dowel pins are used as a guide during assembly and must remain in the proper position to assure a good sealing surface.
(1) Apply sealant to the marked surfaces with a bead thickness of 1.5 0.5 mm (Fig. 18).
NOTE: Install front cover of cylinder head within 10 minutes after applying sealant. Do not spread seal- ing bead.

Is any typical RTV made for high temps (I believe grey/black?) suitable or is there a special MB spec sealant to be used?

thanks Dennis, appreciate it! Just waiting to hear back from the machine shop with fingers crossed that the head won't need too much milled and I can reuse it.
