Stainless Steel Exhaust Gaskets

December 19, 2009

I have a regular customer who is in the business of restoring obscure Japanese small trucks from the 1960s. Really small. To give you an idea of just how small they are, I have helpfully inserted an image of Gary Coleman next to a Cony truck (1 Coleman unit = 4 feet 8 inches):

The customer sent me a galvanized steel exhaust gasket, pictured in a scanned image below. Construction type is a steel sandwich, with an asbestos core.

According to my customer the problem with this gasket is that they rust out rather quickly, so I recommended going with stainless steel, and he agreed. Here is one of the 100 replacement gaskets we made:

If you are a Cony owner in need of gaskets or parts please visit the customer’s web site:
