I made one off stock cover. Bent a little piece of sheet metal into roughly a soft "z" channel & tacked it onto upper half. Acts as sort of a canopy over the joint + forms a trough/dam to help retain bead of RTV. Doesn't leak & have no plans to use it, just a MAW that has been transferred from engine to engine.

I tig welded an 1/8" strip on the lower half, split the bolt holes in half. Using grey silicone it has no leaks.

I have made them by cutting across the upper 3/8" bolt holes, seal with RTV. Has worked for 44 years. No flap, no complicated stuff.

LoL
maybe you would like to change your cam degree / timing
if you do your 2 piece right
you can keep water pump bolted to the up segment
