Where did you get your paper gaskets from?

Another option-

They have good reports on here.
I'm waiting to see if they do the complete gasket set. Although the add says 'full set' I can't see the small stuff like oil pump, fuel filter housing and the washers that go on the dipper tray, oil pipes and drain plug.
Silicon does the job but it tends to spread too much. I bet it takes half a tube to set the bump stop.  :D

no its only the barrel water jacket inspection plates  ,the crank and breather cover plate,the flow and return cast iron threaded 1/1/4 pieces that bolts to the head,i wouldnt like to use silcone on the head, the copper one did the job, but the gasket set i did buy came with some of the pump seals ,and some i didnt even use
