there is no gasket jimmy, all you need is get some proper jointing silicone from your local motor factors and use that, the way to seal it best is remove sump clean every last bit of the old stuff off then put a nice plump bead all the way round , now leave that for 20 mins or so then offer it up to the block put it on finger tight to start off , leave it again for another 20 odd minutes then tighten it up nice and tight , theres probably a torque setting but ft will suffice

Just be VERY careful you don't put too much on. The last thing you want is some dropping into your sump and getting sucked into [and blocking] the oil pick up!
