LOL, I really feel sorry for you, hahahahahahaha :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Anyway, most folks don't even use a gasket. I clean and degrease both surfaces, then use nice bead of high-quality silicone sealant, let the sealant set up for about 5 or 10 minutes, then carefully assemble, and wait a while before adding fluid. Never had a leak.
