[Healeys] Diff Pumpkin Seal

I've used the paper gaskets--which usually aren't a perfect fit--with a 
thin coating of Permatex Aviation Form-A-Gasket on both sides a few 
times with no leaks.  Make sure both surfaces are smooth and flat.  One 
of the modern sealants--e.g. 'Right Stuff'--would work well but be 
warned these are often just as good as glues and can be the devil to 
undo.  My rebuilder used two beads of 'Right Stuff' on my BJ8's pan and 
when I cracked it and had to remove it I injured an elbow trying to 
separate the pan from the block.
