    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

    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.

    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.

    if these are top of the line there , then they should be good.the problem here in the states come from shit load of tools made in china. so in order to be accurate we need to spend some $$$ in good tools no crap from auto zone made in china. no wonder they let you use it for free.
