Form a gasket for vacuum pump pad blank ??

I am almost ready for first engine start with a salvaged O-235 C2C. While doing pre-oiling the blanked vacuum pad started leaking oil. After pulling the blank I discovered a bad gasket.So the question is:Should I source a proper gasket?Or is it acceptable to use high temp form a gasket instead?I have been unable to find a definitive answer to this one.Thanks, Matt StecherSkydive Houston 37XASee More
