Default 740 turbo downpipe flange

I am turboing my 76 242 with parts from an 88 740 turbo. Does anyone know if there is a gasket that goes between the downpipe and the turbo? If so what does it look like?

No gasket. That tapered flange seals without a gasket.

A little gungum helps if the flange is a bit deformed...
