IAC gasket

Ok, sorry, another question.
Nobody shows the gasket being available for IAC. Napa and others were unable to cross reference anything including a ranger. Is it still available? Part Number (couldn't find it on a search)?
Would using some RTV (ultra copper) work in it's place? Or should I get some carb gasket material and make my own?
Thanks

i made my own using gasket material that we had lying around and the old one as a template. no problems with it, so it must be ok, but this is just a suggestion, as i myself am still new to tc's

I'm looking at a Felpro upper end kit. They got 3 possibilities listed: two are titled "air bypass valve": 94131 and 93992. The third is titled "air bypass", 94069. Make an outline of your valve and see if they can match it. Otherwise a Cherrios box works well.

Thanks.
I used the cardboard backing my EGR gasket came with (napa).
Currently experiencing Dan E's frustration of plugged HLA holes, not to mention all the crumbled cork that landed IN the head when I took the valve cover off, and the 2 hours of scraping on the head.
UUGH.
Did the injector seals yesterday, and today it's about 90 here again.
No, not hot for you all, but really toasty for my pale cloud tan legs. Wish my garage were larger.
thanks for listening.

Ford still sells them, I bought one earlier in the week but it was like $5. I'll check the part number for it later on. Theres also a gaket set that I got from my local part store for like $4 that included the IAC gasket but it wasnt made by felpro.
