Default What are these gaskets for? 740 head gasket set

Here’s the set: https://www.amazon.com/Gasket-VICTOR.../dp/B075NQQKCW

I know what most components of this set are for. Just need help with the large cork-like gasket, the odd looking gasket with five holes sitting inside the cork gasket, and the several copper washers (I know 2 are likely for the sensors in the head, but what about the other 6?).

I think the cork gasket is for a K-jet air meter. You don't use it. Nor do you use any of the other copper sealing rings.

Perfect thanks. Guessing the other odd gasket also isn’t used?

The 5 hole gasket is for the idle adjusting screw housing.

I can use the cork and 5 hole gaskets if you are not going to. I will gladly pay postage.

Think I'll keep the 5 hole as a spare because it is used on my car, but I may be able to send you the cork.
