Tailpipe Flange to Manifold Connection Advice Needed

How do you guys connect your tailpipe to the bottom of the heat riser for a tight seal?  On my '49 76S with 320 engine, I need to replace the exhaust pipe flange with one that fits better as it leaks badly.  The manual just describes the flange and a gasket bolted to the heat riser/center section. 

 

Is it advisable or necessary to use a do-nut gasket for better seal or will a flat standard gasket do the job?  I have a do-nut in there now as you see in photos below.

Hello ,I have a Super with just the flat gasket,the exhaust pipe has about a 1 inch of the pipe that fits into the manifold above the flange area. I had replaced the exhaust system a few years back , so it was a repro .
