Check your squish just to be safe, even though it should be fine without the gasket on these.  I use ThreeBond 1194 when not using gaskets.

I take it you just reused your cylinder and didnt want this one I had for shipping?

I took the width of a sharpie line off the base of mine with sandpaper glued to the top of my desk. (Yes I know I'm a redneck...so what?)
Did away with the base gasket, widened the exhaust and squared it off a bit, opened the phenolic resin intake manifold for a bit better flow, opened the muffler a tad and the ol' "Ugly Bastard" runs pretty well!

Brokenbudget had a picture of a cylinder that he did on a 3400.   Here is what he did.
