Utilizing a 3/32" thick Buna-N gasket between cover and housing that contains food grade mineral oil. Gasket is machined to conform to shape of cover and for screw thru holes. Noticing that during disassembly, the gasket loses its form and becomes very wavy. Suspect it is absorbing oil. Is this possible for Buna-N? Is this a produce of machining the rubber?
