Gaskets

All the gaskets on my carb were missing when I bought my moped (the seals between the bowl and lid....and between the carb and the engine).

Are they usually made out of silicone rubber? I plan on just getting a sheet of that from the hardware store and cutting my own profiles.

Thanks

the bowl gasket is rubber, the rest should be madfe from a paper gasket material.

Re: Gaskets

gasoline dissolves silicone .. it's not to be used in contact with liquid gasoline.

get some gasket paper at the auto-parts store .. use X-acto knives, scissors and a turret-type leather punch for any small holes.
