use the gasket and make sure your screws are tight.

It also helps to sand the case down a bit to flatten it out. The cases over time are going to leak no matter what.

Don't over fill the case either - just until the pins are covered.

I found that if you do this, you will be good till the next rebuild.

I hear you can buy some aftermarket parts to help revent leakage. I just don't know what are those parts and where to get them from.

Make sure to grease the outdrive, oring and case where the outdrive enters with some kind of seal friendly drease (Associated Green Slime, Noleen SF-3 suspension grease etc.) use the Carolina's orings too, they help.
When you tighten the case screws gradually tighten them in an alternating cross pattern so that they are even. Should have no problems after that.
