Default VA-2 Rear diff plug gasket

Does anyone have the part number for the VA-2 (05 XT Turbo) rear diff drain plug gasket. The parts guy at the local subaru parts counter said there isn't one, but I'm pretty sure he was looking at the T type. Easier if I just walk in with a part number.

Do I need one or two (one for the top, one for the bottom)?

Ton of work to do this weekend. Timing belt, Drive's side inner CV boot, transmission fluid change, front and rear diff. 105k, figure I should get to the timing belt and fluid changes finally, and just notice the torn CV changing the oil this weekend. Sigh!

Thanks!

Tom

To answer my own question - New part number 803918060 found here: Subaru changes diff plug gaskets - Automotive Service Professional

but the torque listed there must be way off, since the FSM lists 21.4 ft-lbs for the old type. Not sure what that means for the new type.

Something to add to this. The gasket p/n 11126AA040 is still available and it's the same kind as the one on the engine oil pan, only a different size: the diameter is 18 mm. A 6-cyl. car used three of these: two for the diff., and one for 5EAT transmission. FSM indeed specifies 21.4 lb-ft of torque. I believe it's the correct value for the above part because that's the p/n found in the same-year parts catalog (in my case, 2006).
By the way, although the M18 transmission and rear diff. plugs are interchangeable on 6-cyl. models, the former takes a TP50 (or 8 mm hex) driver bit, while both of the latter take a 10 mm hex bit.
A mention of TP50 might be worth including in JazzyMT's sticky thread, which is unfortunately locked.
PS Thinking some more, any 18 mm oxygen sensor gasket should do the job.
