Amtrol boilermate gasket

This past week I have had 2 cases where the gasket to the Amtrol CH series indirect has failed. I have tried to replace this gasket in the past w/ less than great results.
The gasket is relatively thin for this.
Anyone else had/ witnessed this?
Any hints to a successful water-tight repair?

    Are you talking about the inlet/outlet fittings/gaskets at the top? I only have a few in my customer base, no gasket issues.

    Yes. Where the big coil bolts down to the tank. I have a few out there and yes not a lot of issues. Just odd 2 in one week.
    I did try once before to repair and it did not work

    these tanks were known for premature failure. We used to call the the "atom bombs" because of their shape. I'd replace with a stainless indirect and enjoy longevity.
