are you asking about the copper crush ring used on 1200CC 40 hp engine? paper gasket was obsoleted in mid 70's and was replaced by hi temp silicone. small bead on cylinder where it goes against spotface for spigot.
do you use a spacer ring to lower compression,then silicone goes on both sides of spacer. if you use a spacer/shim on head to cylinder/barrel then those are installed dry.
