I'll look into that.  The o-ring is working but the bowl and flange dont have any sort of recess to hold the oring.  The idea of a square rubber ring is likely to be the correct part.

Alex, have you considered taking the cover with you to a good local hardware store that has a selection of O rings?  Or is that where you got this one?

Guys : The square "O" ring gasket is the correct part.  When I ordered the finer mesh screen I got a couple of new gaskets (less than $1 each) and keep them nimble with silicone spray.

I got a sherwood raw water strainer gasket (oring) at Fiaheries.  It was the correct diameter however it is round rather than square.
