Default New gasket for 1930 radiator cap question....

I removed the original gasket from my repro cap and my new gasket 'floats' in the cap between the copper 'gasket' and twist clamp.

Original gasket was larger and was a snug fit as it was installed during production.

New gasket has a larger center hole so it will fit over twist clamp and is loose.

Should I adhere the new gasket with a sealer or leave as is?
Thank you from Bullhead City

As long as it won't fall off don't worry about it.

Thank you both for your replies.
No sealant 'it is'.

I had a repro quail on which the fiber gasket was too thin so the cap rattled. I got a rubber O-ring of the right diameter at the hardware store - no more problem.
