If you're modeling the gasket at different lengths, you have a family table for all of these gaskets?
Use or create a parameter for the part number of this gasket to be used in the BOM and add to the family table.
I have had this type of parameter update automatically by parsing the length of the gasket value onto a parameter that includes the generic part number as well.
The length of the gasket can be found by creating a saved measurement of the curve length for the 'spine' that the gasket is swept along.
It may report the length in inches, so you have to do more programming kung-fu to get the value in decimal feet and then convert this to a text string that can be appended to text string that includes the generic part number.
