Engine Gaskets

Hi All.

Does anyone know where I can get some templates for the gaskets? I've stripped the engine, and it's not cheap to buy all the gaskets. They're over £100 so i'm thinking of getting some good gasket paper and making them.

Thanks.. Ian

I've got one for the stator case.

If you're into cutting gaskets, just use the cases and mark them out. Tapping with a mallet is a good technique, where it can be done. Will still have to buy head gaskets and most likely valve cover gaskets and seals for the bolts.

Center cases use something like Yamabond, maybe Right Stuff.

Have you looked on ebay? They're usually pretty cheap there. I paid $10 for the stator gasket, and $10 for the clutch case gask.
