keith, unless that little piece is cheap from Kohler, you can measure the thickness and possibly find some cork gasket material and cut to size one. The rear main seal might be a rope type seal instead of a one piece rubber seal. The rope type seal usually is in two pieces. One piece fits in a groove on the block, then you install the crankshaft. The other piece fits into a grove on the rear main bearing cap. You use some good silicone sealer where the rope seal halves meet.

I think it was 3 bucks and change. Expensive for a piece of cork, but the correct size and shape already so...

The rear seal is a rubber lip seal on these. But I'll bet my favorite old Kohlers made from the '20's through the '40's have something like a rope seal.

I agree... Cheap enough. With "Today's" silicone sealants, you could probably just put a dab of sealant between the cap and block. I always use a dab of silicone sealant at the sharp corners where the cam bearing cap meets the head when installing an over-head cam valve cover gasket. I would seal the cork pieces in place.
