The gasket I was supplied looks like the one on Clarks, page 127.  In the
top middle grouping, labeled PG, there is a gasket in the lower right-hand.
That's the one I have.  I think the little punch-outs will allow fluid to
bleed across passages.

of 123 of the Clark's catalog.  The 666-69 is slightly different 
around the input shaft and the oil transfer hole but basically the 
same. If yours is different than the one pictured... well there are only
