put them back dry, all except the small pieces for the oil pan. Use a small amount of RTV where the gasket joins together to the old gaskets seal on the timing cover.

i put silicone on all of them, seen it a few times where the water pump leaks because it has no silicone on it

Why in the hell would you pull the timing cover to replace the front seal?
