Chorehorse Generators

Recommended Posts

Before I go to the trouble of having some made, does anyone have a source for head gaskets for these generators?


The war-time Canadian ones seem to have been made of an asbestos material.


I got one from a member on here, name escapes me right now, bear with me I'll have a dig around...

Providing the head face is perfectly true, I would suggest cutting a gasket out of a piece of copper sheet, a lot of the older motorcycle engines used solid copper gaskets. Make sure it is annealed before using.


Beat me to it Richard, I was about to say that, mine ran on a gasket cut from thick heatproof gasket paper very well before I got a proper one.
