When joining cases do you put the gasket maker along all the mating surface or just the outer edge?

So basically along both lines or just along the blue line?

Follow both lines the crankcase has to be completely sealed from the transmission on a 2 stroke... you can find a manual it will show you the preferred way to lay the case bond... Also the top of the rod looks a little rusty?

RTV sells a grey colored silicon that is made for motorcycle cases and is as good as anything I’ve used. I think it’s called ‘motobond’.
