Use something like Indian Head gasket shellac or a hardening gasket sealant to hold the cork in the holder. Do not soak it in oil first, that will prevent the shellac or hardening gasket sealant from doing its job. When ready to install, some oil or light grease on the face that goes against the metal cover is appropriate, with the motor running it will soon enough become thoroughly wetted with motor oil.

Sorry, no idea about the notches, they weren't on my original. Perhaps a later change intended to go against the metal cover to minimize chatter?
