Thanks for asking your question and requesting me. I will try and help you out.

Unfortunately it can not. I am sorry. I wish that was not the case.

The 5EK can only use the puzzle gasket as the isolator gasket is not the same size.

To help stop a leak you will need to use extra silicon sealant on the problem area.

Please reply back if you need more help or have more questions. I am happy to assist.
