The gasket is necessary since the body lining is sitting on a metal shelf.  It will seal in the heat and keep the shelf from getting hot.



I purchased the ceramic rope and mortar from Wesco Refractories





I put a bead of mortar and placed the rope on top of it then smoothed the sides.





I lowered the furnace down so to check alignment and to seat the gasket.  When the mortar dries it will be in the correct position.  The gasket seals very well.  I noticed no hotspots coming though.
