Had to buy a $200 rebuild kit to get the paper gasket, to replace the solenoid the valve body had to be dropped to get the new one installed
I didn't remove my valve body, I did loosen and drop it 1/4" for clearance. Realoem shows part 24161423608 - Set plug between the valve body and case. Do you think your problem was a failure of this part?

Mine has had no problems 1 year/10k mile after replacing just the solenoid
