Hi Old Git

There are two round paper gaskets with a round steel plate in between.

Hello Pete!

parts list before 1960 have 1 gasket listed, later ones state 2 off. Dunno why  *dunno*
I have however fitted 2 on my bikes without any subsequent problems, in the following order: crankcase-gasket-spacer ring-gasket-inner primary cover.

HTH, Markus

Hi Pete,
As others have said, use two, one either side of the metal spacer. I've used Wellseal on all surfaces, just to try & keep things oil-tight. My A10 is 1962...
Hope this helps..
