flame arrestor gasket

Is there suppost to be a gasket under the flame arrestor? I dont have one and i am having issues with the choke linkage sticking. I think it is hitting the screen on the inside. As long as i dont tighten the wing nut it works fine, tighten it and the linkage sticks.

Yes it should have a paper/composite type gasket under the flame arrestor.

I dont think the thickness is as important as the fact when i tighten it in a certain position it will stay and not interfere with the choke. Thanks
