Use of gaskets

Post  wingman on Mon 19 Sep 2016, 4:13 pm

Hi everyone,I have recieved kits 11A and 11b in the last few days and upon reading the build instructions it states that the use of the supplied gaskets is optional.

Just wondering what your thoughts are and if you went with or without gaskets and any problems if any with leaving them off.

Be good to get your feedback on this one.

Regards John.

Hi John, as far as the valve chest is concerned, Steve advised me not to use the gasket, just use foliac, because this cover will undoubtedly be removed from time to time. I have used the gaskets on the actuually cylinder.

You definitely need that one. You need to use the foliac on that as instructed. All being well you should never need to remove the cylinder, mike
