Hi all and GTtoo -

I am chasing a gasket for my GT to fix a bad oil leak - old one has distorted and moved and is a mess.
Auto Surplus in Mitcham have 2 made from cork, but seem to bee very thick at about 5-6mm and also a tad expensive ($45 !!!!).
Glenn gave me a link to GTtoo from a couple of years ago and his work in cutting some new ones from cork. The question is - are any still available?????

The alternative is to buy a sheet of neoprene rubberised cork and cut a couple for me and for whoever else may need them. This sheet is more like the gasket I have - more rubber than cork and about 3mm thick. It came from a complete engine gasket set many years ago. Size of the sheet from Auto Surplus is about 1200mm x 650mm and priced at $80. This would work out to about $10 per gasket, which is a much better alternative if there is a need for more gaskets.

Cheers, Barrie.

I purchased one from Auto Surplus, if you do go ahead with making or getting them made, I'm in for it, the thickness of the Auto Surplus to my memory is correct as they cover all models (this is going from very old recollections mind you)

What is the thickness of the gaskets you have?? And are they mainly cork like what GTtoo had or a more rubberised cork material?
Cheers.

Mine are original NOS so probably natural cork I would think and they are about 5 or 6mm thick.
