I believe that the purpose of deleting the gasket is to maintain the same
plug tip exposure in the combustion chamber. Secondly, with the stacked
washers, you might be exposing some of the thread in the plug hole. Might
be a source of detonation.

On my newly purchased gauge sender unit, they advise me to put it
under a spark plug or on a head bolt.If I go with it under a spark
plug, they advise removing the gasket from the plug.

That's interesting. My Falcon dual CHT gauge (as far as I remember)
said nothing about removing the plug gasket. I have my senders
sandwiched between the gasket and the plug base on the #'s 3 and 4
cylinders. I chose this method because it kept the senders on the
plugs as they were lowered into the shroud before threading. I have
driven the car over 2000 miles and not noticed any adverse effects.
