I have an old 70 cady moped. It has the isodyne m1 engine. I'm looking to make new head gaskets. Can anyone point me in the right direction on where to purchase the aluminum or copper material to do so? LOCATED IN ONTARIO CANADA
Rubberized gasket material is available at any decent auto parts store .
As for head gasket , use the one that's on the motor. Anneal that gasket before reuse .
I've even used heavy duty aluminum foil for head gaskets .
You may be able to buy a nos, check eBay or maybe DOS cycles, you sure you need one?
Can you clarify what you mean by nos? And yes I'm 99% sure, they come with one from factory, so I'm assuming I do..
Nos=new old stock
You can buy a small piece of Amaraid gas resist gasket material on mcmaster-carr.com for the base gasket for a couple of bucks if you cant find one. They also sell high temp material that may work for the head gasket.
I'd mill the head, and cylinder, and go without.
I would find a similar one for another motor with the same stud pattern
and trim it to fit
