Default Large head gasket

Hi all

I'm looking for a decent sized piece of head gasket material for a large engine,

I have changed a head gasket before on a lister d, but that was a ready made job

what I would like to know is.

1. Best type of gasket to use for a head (there are so many types)

2. Are there any decent suppliers?

Thank you in advance

Sean.

How large is large?

Can always get one made from gaskets to go, Google should find them ok.

I'm guessing those inches were meant to be cm? Otherwise it's a chuffing big Blackstone vertical...!

33" x 24" is the max size of the engine including protrusions such as the exhaust, fuel tank, crankshaft, flywheel etc. It is not the size you need for a gasket!!!

Is it the first of April already!?


If you want to make your own gasket, a sharpened set of dividers, a sheet of Klinger gasket material and a set of wad punches can be purchased for the job. I bought a set of cheapo wad punches (8, 3-20mm) and they are just the job for gasket cutting. A copper fibre sandwich gasket is a better bet, but making your own is easy enough - all the items required are available on ebay.

Phill.
