Paper gasket on the center cases? That's very strange, I wonder if that's why some of those engines grenade and others don't, hard to get a consistant torque/preload on the bearings with a paper gasket in the middle. I'd imagine that you'd want to be super specific on the torque values for the case when you put it back together.
