Yeah was just wondering about the gasket. Like I said I still have the o-ring gasket but didn't realize they went back to paper. Also I have to agree with Ironmark about replacing the torque head bolts with allen. You won't have to worry about stripping them anymore with the allen heads

The same ole flattened "less than proud bead" still does it's job lol. No need to add anything to it.
my 07, 10 and 12 all had the 'quad ring' in the derby cover. the only paper gasket that i've seen used is for an aftermarket derby cover.

i've never had a problem with the torx derby cover screws. they are not a high torque item, install them properly, use a little anti seize and install them in an alternating pattern and no probs.

I understand the concept of reality, but find it too confining for a way of life.
