Cylinder Base Flange Gasket

I got about everything I need to put together my '58 Allstate. I didn't get that gasket that sits at the base of the cylinder. What do you guys recomend to use? I've got some regular gasket material, but is there anything I should NOT use?

No, I wouldn't use cork, like a valve cover gasket's made of....

Any fuel/oil proof gasket paper will work. The only thing worth worrying about is inadequate piston-to-head clearance, so use something as thick or thicker than the original gasket thickness.

Cool, I'm on my way over.

Thanks, Joe!

Pray for my ride across town! I'm taking the malfunctioning Peugeot 102.
