Whats it for? Aircooled perhaps? In a pack of loads of associated gaskets. I have thin ones too.

its for a 2.1 injection manufold I assume to insulate heat and keep injectors cool

you are using carb so you want the thin one only for a DG, DF gaskets in kits too but smaller ports.

either way up but need to rotate so it aligns with head ports, I have made that mistake

Your (& many of the other experienced guys on here) input is always greatly appreciated to us less experienced guys - helps keep us sane & on track many times.

Might be an idea to have a "beer drop off point" at 80-90 club camping pitches at shows - us greatful guys can place some there as a thank you - i'm sure they won't go to waste ;-)

Busfest used to be the beer/thanks exchange.
I was a beneficiary a few times.
