The problem is probably not the gasket. We have found that over the years people over tighten these housing bolts and warp the housing. We resurface these housings and when reassembling them apply a "very thin " coat of Loctite 574.
We have also found that different kits come with different thickness of gasket. Although for some application the thick gasket helps to dimension the chain housing better, when possible we use the factory thin gasket for the best results.
For the best possible gaskets and gasket kits we only use Wrightwood Racing gaskets and kits. Charlie is a perfectionist so he only uses the finest gaskets available. No matter how much it cost.
Ask your Pelican parts guy if he can get them. Because the Pelican people like to sell the best possible parts they may already stock them.
