Does it matter?

The 'O' ring material went between the clutch cover and the engine. I used gasket adhesive to keep the rubber in place until the cover was installed. Don't get too aggressive when tightening the cover bolts or you'll defeat the purpose. Use Loctite and just tighten the bolts until snug. This decreased the clutch noise a lot.
The sheet rubber, (mouse pad), glued to the outside of the cover apparently works too but I didn't like the appearance. 'O' ring material is available from Grainger. I used 1/8th inch; not much surface area for anything bigger.
