Default Cork Gasket for FM ZD Cover

A Fairbanks Morse Z model D, did they use a cork gasket on the crankcase cover. If so what thickness, I have not been able to find a ready made gasket for it so I may need to make it. What would you guys use. Could you use regular gasket material or is there not enough give on that. Do you just buy roll material and cut one. Thanks.

Check out hi-n-miss enterprises, they have the gaskets you are looking for. I have bought the gaskets from them and they fit great!! Hit-n-miss is listed here on smokstak. Check them out. Hope this helps.
