Can anyone tell me what to put on the V112 form when applying for a import registration over 40 years, as you don't have a reg number yet, what are people putting in that box.

I sympathize fully.
I once bought a nos front mudguard for my As1. It arrived loose. In a clear plastic bag and nothing else. All the way from Singapore.
In perfect condition! Just lucky I suppose.

Aircooled RD Tech Help 250cc and Above / Re: Base gasket. Dry or sealer?

I always rub grease into both sides of paper gaskets, helps settlement, ease of future removal and possible re-use.

Ahh an old trick +1
Helps seal carb bowl gaskets if esp the paper type as well.

Yep! Prevents the fuel from wicking through porous gasket material.

I like to fit them dry , i always think if you use sealant you may as  well use it with the old gasket 🤷???

They are to be fitted dry between two grease free surfaces so that with heat and pressure they bond to the surfaces.
That’s the best seal you can get. Generally if you take an original barrel off you often tear the gasket....have to splash out on a new one....but not really expensive are they ...
If you prefer to cover them with grease or another layer of instant gasket, make a nice jam sandwich squeezing out the edges, then all being well it’s unlikely to cause a problem...but it’s not what is specified or intended.
