No gasget is used between the head and barrel, just lap the head in to the barrel with fine grinding paste making sure all old paste is removed. Tighten head evenly in stages until tight. If undamaged re-use alloy base gasget so as not to alter comp ratio or vertical shaft coupling clearances. Bs all the best John
