Default 91 distributor cap gasket

I had my cap and wires replaced and am experiencing problems after it
rains. Ive learned there is a gasket that must be instaled inbetween the
cap and distributor that I think the mechanic may have forgot to instal.

Is this gasket visible just looking at the distributor, I can not see

There is a O-ring seal between dist cap and dist.
It may of been hard and fallen off during cap replacement or from previous
removal of cap.
The O-ring may not be visible when cap is installed, there is channel on
the dist where it seats.
Was the rotor changed out also? Its a good ideal to change out the rotor
as part of the dist cap replacement.

I just replaced my 1995 cap/rotor/o-ring at 140k and the thin rubber gasket
between the distributor and the cap was still flexible and seemed fine, so
I re-used it.
