The AT gasket that I got from NAPA is just rubber, but I think the one you
have may be correct (especially if it fits).
Does anyone know a source for these?

According to Bentley it is: "Working diagnolly, tighten the pan screws to
1mkg (7 ft. lb.). Wait five minutes for the new gasket to compress, then
retorque the screws.  Repeat this sequence several times until the screws
remain at torque."
And Never torque over 1 mkg (7 ft. lb).
