And that is not only the ones you blow when you manage to break another frozen bolt, but when you mess up something putting it back together!

Or did you mean the flattish ones that are supposed to seal the motor?

Yeah, well I learned about the advisability of resurrecting old Japanese bikes these daze the hard way. If other clowns want to re-invent the wheel they can be my guest.

Ha! The new gaskets are no longer asbestos composition, but this green paper shyt. You cannot remove them without destroying them even if you use Gascacinch. So, don't screw up or you gotta order another set.
