You may be able to find a gasket, its typically just a paper gasket; but honestly the silicone make a gasket works very well.
Like said earlier, you can put the make a gasket on and bolt the cover back on then let it set up, or just fill with oil. I have not had a problem with just filling, but sometimes if its not cleaned up right it can have a problem sealing.
What I do is clean both surfaces real good and even use rubbing alcohol or brake cleaner on those surfaces to make sure there is no oil left. (it wont seal well if there is oil left), then I squeeze the silicone on the cover, carefully place the cover on and without moving the cover any more than necessary I replace the bolts.
