    iam struggling to get hold of some very old head gaskets for 2 honda small generators.

    they are dinky little flat gaskets and could be easily made from pattern if only i could find a suitable sheet gasket material...

    any body any ideas for something suitable....there is a mass of sheet materials online but nothing seems suitable for head gasket work !!

    Can you not make them from sheet copper? Old hot water cylinder is ideal.

    Hallite or Klingerite, both come in various thicknesses. You can get Hallite with a stainless wire reinforcement. Try an engineers stockist. Works for me

    Gerry, I use Fel-Pro 2499 for such usages. This is a high temperature steel reinforced gasket material available at any auto parts store(this side of the lake :D ) and it works fine for head gaskets and is not expensive.
