Preferred method for 915 sealing? 574, Curil T?

About to get my 915 back together and noticed paper gaskets in my seal kit. The gear box didn't have any upon disassembly and only used 574. The box was "rebuilt" by Vertex in 2011 and can't speak for the quality of their work. To the best of my recollection, it didn't leak...I pulled it to installed short gears, diff and all new syncros.

I used Curil T on the main seal, but tore the bugger after trying to get the pesky Wevo Gateshift installed. Reading further, i see people use both 574 and no gasket or with.

Thoughts?

When I rebuilt mine I was taught to use both paper gasket and Curil T. Going on about 10 years now and no leaks.

574 with no paper. They aren’t part of pinion set up on a 915 like they are on a 901/911.

Nothing on a seal.

I've been using Dirko gray instead of gaskets for years.
