Just make sure the new one actually ends up where it should be - they
can be a bit fiddly to get right.

Bit of gasket sealer both sides of the cork gasket and do not over tighten
the bolts just nip them up, works for me

Why not use the rubber ones? You can't overtighten them as the have a metal
insert in bolt holes. Fitted some to mine no problems with them since.
