53 flattie 8 Disy Help needed

We are re-building a flattie and just about ready to start it up... Is there any type of seal or gasket? that goes on the dissy
We are concerned about blow by pushing oil mist out where the disy goes into the engine...

Thanks in advance.

neither of my flattie's have a gasket under the dizzy , and have had no issues with oil misting out of them . replace the draft tube with a pcv !!!!!!! ask ross / albuq about it that's where i got the parts list . bout 20 bucks and no more vapors coming out from under the truck and it seems to have kept the intake valley so much cleaner !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

older flatties with crab dizzy use gasket, newer ones do not. pcv will help keep internals cleaner. crank it up!
