Tere is no gasket beyond the mickey mouse seal. If it makes to feel better, apply a dab of ultra grey where the seam of the block goes behind the oil pump housing. There is a shaft seal, then the mickey, and just a round inner o-ring .This makes 3 total parts for the oil pump seals.

what he said - mickey mouse gasket, oring, and shaft seal. dabs of sealant (very small) go on oil pump housing at 12 noon and 6 oclock where the case halves meet if you look closely at the block. i suspect that step is probably skipped fairly often but it's in the FSM.

alright do I need to lube up the rings with oil upon re-installation?

a slight film of oil is good to ease installation. use a liberal amount on the trochoidial rotor.
