Copper gasket for six-cylinder bike

February 24, 2020

A customer sent us an old six-cylinder motorcycle gasket of unknown make (shown on top) and we were able to make a copper gasket replacement (shown below).

We can supply any solid copper gasket in thicknesses from 0.2mm on up. We can work from scale drawings (dxf or pdf), old gaskets, or templates.


Feel free to contact us with questions!

Fieseler Fi 156 Storch Copper Sandwich Exhaust Gaskets

December 1, 2010

Prior to making the Rolls Royce Merlin rocker cover gaskets just profiled below, the same museum asked us to make a batch of copper/asbestos sandwich exhaust gasket for a German Fieseler Fi 156 Storch, pictured below. I will paste a link to a Wikipedia entry for that aircraft for those wishing to learn more:

We were able to provide them with a quotation after they sent an image of the gasket with dimensions. They were happy with the quotation so they sent a couple of old gaskets to us via priority mail.

I should mention for our US customers that Priority Mail works very well, and there are several flat rate package or envelope sizes that are pretty reasonably priced. Packages can be traced via the web and usually arrive here within one week. OK, back to the gaskets. You can see our reproduction on the right, with the bore and bolt holes sealed per the original. We use 0.3mm copper sheet for these types of gaskets.

Curved Dash Oldsmobile

December 23, 2009

It is hard to believe but the Oldsmobile is no longer with us. My first car was a rusty $100 1960 Oldsmobile Dynamic 88. Didn’t last too much longer after I bought it, but I went on to have good experiences with a second hand 1979 Olds Cutlass and a 1984 88.

I mention Olds because we recently had the honor of making a batch of copper head and valve cover gaskets for the very first car mass-produced in any quantity, the Curved Dash Olds, produced from 1901 to 1907.

There were only about 20,000 of these made, but something like 1,000 are still around, and the CDO Club sent a drawing of the valve cover gasket and a scan with dimensions for the head gasket in order to order enough of these gaskets to keep these machines running.

Here are the finished gaskets:
