No gasket, just the "CE" ring in the cylinder deck groove.

Edit: you later model engine has no "CE" ring. 3.2 Carrera engines began using a conical shape to the sealing flange on the cylinder head to take the place of the ring. This allowed a narrower cylinder sealing area as the bores increased and the "CE" ring groove would crack under the pressure of combustion. This sealing area should be in good shape to prevent leaks, if you had any broken head studs allowing the heads to slap, you may need some machine work.
