Anyone know if you have to use the OEM gaskets for the bearing retainer plate on the gear box on a 54" Bolens mower, or can I just use liquid gasket? I removed the plate to inspect the gears and drained the very old gear oil, now I want to re-seal it, but the old gaskets are kinda warped looking. I'd just as soon use liquid gasket if it will work ok.

The plastic like gaskets were shim gaskets, blue were the thinner ones and the white were the thicker ones. Check your play and see if you have any issues you may get away with the 1717449 front gasket but the shim gaskets are important.
I have all them here if needed.
