GP1300 OEM Head Gasket.....??
To all GH Gurus and experts...,
After some water leakage true my riva head bolts, i took away the heads and gasket today..
What i dont understand is that the cylinders have big cooling openings, and the gasket have smaller openings to puss the water true...
and most holes dont even match with the Riva heads??
The last mechanic told me he used all OEM gaskets...So is this a OEM, should there be any markings on like 60T...?
The gasket was good inplace (i think) according to the shape of the cylinders not being round
see attached pics for reference
i do all repairs my self from now on...
Just bought this gasket
and these Heads from SCITTB

The 60T 10 head gasket is for the 1300. If those heads are stock your ok but if they have been machined you need extra washers under the head bolts. My experience with the SS head bolts is they stretch and wont hold torqe causing water intrusion so i use OEM bolts.

Luckely with the good service at Boats.net, i could add something to my order (saved me $20 shipping costs)
Now OEM Gasket and 18 OEM Bolts in order

VdeKock, if you plan to do all your own work on your ski, go buy yourself a GOOD torque wrench! Snapon-Mac-etc.... this way you get accurate tq readings.

Same goes for a compression tester.

Dont know if its available in the US, but have access to BETA Tools.... one of the top 3 tools here http://www.beta-tools.com/beta/index_en.html
Didnt check my $40 compression tester yet.... Bit cheap, but if they read 3 times the same it should be ok..... i hope
