I took my 50V out for a ride on Saturday when I first got it running. When I got back, I noticed that the back of the front fender was splattered with oil that had sprayed out from around the exhaust. Not good! So I need to get serious about buying (or maybe making) one of these copper exhaust gaskets. Here are the parts I currently have:
The exhaust was assembled with the flat side of the ring facing the block, and the concave side of the ring facing the pipe. It's not copper, as it sticks to a magnet. Is it supposed to be in there, or is it someone's attempt at substituting for the copper ring? If it does belong, is it facing the right way? And where would the copper ring go in relation to it, between it and the pipe, or between it and the block?
