You can make your own gasket out of cork by putting a small socket for the hole in the middle in a vice. Place the cork on top of the socket and tap carefully with a small hammer until the cork is broken through. Now place a larger socket(for the outside diameter) in the vice and tap with hammer. practice makes perfect and you will always have asupply of cheap gaskets. Thin walled pipe works well too.

I have found the new gasket on the screens are a one time use gasket. I have started cutting new gaskets out of the heavy paper gasket material.
Draw around the glass and cut the line off with the sheers. Then cut the center out leaving about a 1/4" of gasket. No more leaks. I used to cut cork gaskets but if removed and not put right back on they dry out and shrink.

I got tired of thosde gaskets that i just plumbed in a ball valve and a clear filter. Now just loosen two clamps to change filter and a valve for fuel shutoff. i know its not original but it sure beats the old way. And no more running to town for a gasket that won't fit.

I HATE leaks on my pretty new paint grrrrrrrrr sooooooo I have the top of the bowl metal assembly (where gasket mates) perfect clean n smooth and likewise the glass bowl top and then I light grease the CORK gasket on both sides and screw the bowl up tight n I keep grease or anti sieze on the lil tightening nut n threads so it dont rust. If the gaskets too big I put it in the freezer a while or warm it up if its too small. If she leaks where the shut off valve goes into the assembly theres usually a lil packing nut you can tighten up a bit but not too tight cuz then its hard to turn and/or the nut may unscrew when you turn the valve.

Problem #1 The new sediment bowls from China tractor parts as sold at TSC and many other sources are pure trash. I bought 4 before I had 1 that would seal, shut off and turn on without leaking.
Problem #2 Something in todays fuel hates the gaskets. The black colored gaskets swell up. The cork gaskets shrink.

There is no fix for problem 1 except to find an original equipment or older replacement bowl that will work. I have not found a fix for problem 2 except to have a supply of replacements handy. Lucily the gasket is only a couple bucks or I made up a set of dies and have lots in stock at the shop. Sealer goop wont fix your problem

I have better luck letting the gasket dry out before I reassemble it. (tried the form-a-gasket -- didn"t work)
