copper/asbestos? gaskets

Post by ettingtonliam on Mon Aug 05 2013, 19:29

I need a gasket to seal the top end of the cylinder liner to the head on my Stuart 600 gas engine project. The only information the original parts list gives is 'copper asbestos washer'. Obviously the 'asbestos' bit is a no-no now, but does anyone know who makes 1 off copper type gaskets these days? Failing that, I'll cut one from 16G copper sheet, anneal it and use plenty of high temperature gasket sealant!.

Thanks Matt.
I went on ebay and got a square of head gasket material that looks just right. Enough for about 10 gaskets, so no problem if I mess one up cutting it

It is a bit of a pain to cut in the end i used a grinder with a thin cutting disc on .
