BETA head gasket

Kevin Kalch (beta_huh) — Jan 20, 2012 02:29PM

So I have 1977 Beta SL5 with the motor partly torn apart. I got new rings for it, but now I'm in search for a head gasket solution.

I realize paper gaskets aren't ideal for this application. I have no problem making something but I can't find any suggestions other than paper gasket and expect it to fail in short order or cut up an aluminum can to the correct shape.

I'm mostly curious if there is anyone out there that would happen to have a head gasket for a beta (extreme long shot, I realize) or if there is an application that is similar that I could use or slightly modify to work for my application.

The piston size is 40mm. The distance diagonally from center of head studs is about 68mm.

Here's a picture of the original gasket.

and the cylinder head
