composition gaskets are fine to reuse also if in good cond. and cleaned properly. they dont start leaking just because you removed them. removing and installing covers carefully is the key. even a lightly damaged composition gasket can be reused with certain sealers, also with certain sealers u dont even need a gasket and it will not leak! btw, there are no paper or cork gaskets on ur 10, and yes both would saturate and leak. most leaks are our fault, not the gaskets.
