    Get rid of the cork gaskets and get the rubber ones with the metal insert and dowels around the bolt holes, can't over tighten them.
    Is this a new vacuum pump? Have you cleaned it and lubed it lately?
    Is it pushing the gaskets out or sucking them in?

    Only a rich man can afford to use cheap parts.
