Okay, I’m looking for a new gasket for the float bowl chamber on the stock Gurtner carb on my 79 Moby. The old one is just about done and it’s likely affecting vacuum.
I was going to make a new gasket out of liquid gasket, but it’s a moped carb, you have to disassemble and re-assemble them so often that that’s a nonsense idea. A paper-type gasket like the original would be much better, but I don’t know how to cut one myself that fine and have it not be ragged-edged and a perfect fit.
Anyway, just looking for suggestions in the following order:
1 – Does anyone know anybpdy who would actually have those gaskets? Online parts listings are a nightmare and have nothing so finicky as all that.
2 – Could you suggest a way cut such a small, fine gasket from a sheet of gasket material with clean edges?
3 – Any way at all I could make liquid gasket work without messing up my fuel system and having the damn thing fall apart on me when I dis-assemble the carb?
