Gasket:

Unfolded gasket from package. Laid it out on counter. Used hair dryer until gasket laid flat and all fold creases were gone.

Loosened the top screws and screws along the sides from the top down with the exception of the bottom three screws. Removed old gasket except for the bottom. Fit in the new gasket on top and down the sides. When the old gasket was met, removed the lower three screws and bottom ones. Totally removed old gasket and slipped in new one. Lightly tighened screws, made sure seal was good, Finished tightened all screws. Heated gasked with hair dryer to remove wrinkles.
Done.
