Yeah, throw out that diamond shaped gasket. The one on the right looks correct. Put them both on the intake if you want to compare....the diamond shape gasket will leave some of the impulse channel uncovered.

Well you called that correctly, good info, and thanks as I could very well have missed that!
For any that have interest, here's a few photos. I had to dig into the saw just to try it out and the saw runs like a champ. Slight tuning of the high speed and away we went. It idles perfectly. Another great dump find!
This photo shows the impulse channel sticking out from the edge of the diamond shaped gasket

 
This one shows the impulse  channel



The gasket on the left is the oem one off the saw, next the diamond shaped one and the larger ones on the right that cover the channel.

I'm not sure why they went with that diamond shaped gasket in the rebuild kits or when it happened...maybe the 90's? I missed it in the early 2000's and thought the J'reds saw was taking a dump on me.

Someone told me once that it fits some MAC application.....I dunno. Seems dumb to me to have to source another gasket out of the 'rebuild' kit.

The larger proper gaskets came in the kit with the diamond shaped one. Gave a choice, that's good.

Yes it is, because the rebuild kits for the big Tilly's I've bought in the last ten yrs have just had the diamond shaped gasket. Maybe somebody finally listened....
