Default Carb gasket for an ‘87?

I’m replacing the carburetor on an ‘87 civic base model with the 1.5 engine.

I'm having a heck of a time finding a base gasket for it. Does anyone make them or sell them?

I'm pretty good with the internet, but I can’t find one.

Rockauto doesn't have them. My wife works for Oreilly auto parts, they don't have them.

The rebuilt carb I got didn't come with one, apparently because no one makes them anymore. And apparently its not just the gasket, but the entire base/insulator tends to be bad, and no one makes those anymore either. Found one, used, on ebay, for $139...
