Default manifold gasket problem.

For those of you using the holley carb intake which gaskets are you using? Tried the Felpro ones and as soon as I turn the manifold over they all fall out. They won't stay in the grooves. Am I missing something here? This isn't my first rodeo, but the first time using a carb manifold.

A small dab of Vaseline on the gasket may hold it in place until install.

Or, you might have the wrong gaskets ?

Found out on the Holley site that the manifold is supposed to use an o-ring style gasket that was supposed to be provided with the manifold and wasn't.
