Can I just use regular old silicone caulking I have laying around for the bead around the stationary shaft seal lip that is pressed into the seal plate housing?

There is definitely a silicone adhesive used for the lip of this seal being pressed into the motor seal plate. It was there when I removed the original shaft seal. I would just like to know if it matters what grade.
