    any cheap place for individual gaskets?

    bought a cometic kit on ebay and i'm missing 6 of the 9 reed valve gaskets (still awaiting a response from the seller), also need 3 carb gaskets (the large diamond shape ones).... any cheap place online to buy individually?? found the carb gaskets on ebay for 2.25 plus $6 shipping, thats a little steep. Found them on sbt for 1.25 a piece, with $16.00 for shipping, not gonna happen

    I make my own carb base gaskets all the time. $5 a roll at the auto parts store. (dense paper kind)

    Now the reed gaksets are a bit harder to do. May want to try and find those ones. Contact Jay at Sharp's marine or John Zigler at Watcon

    Cometic is a good one too. You can call them and ask for individual gaskets.

    Yep, I haven't bought carb gaskets in years. In fact, last year I made a set of intake gaskets out of the high temp, fiber gasket material and they worked perfectly. Tedious? You bet, but they still worked just fine.
