Ive had my Solo Odyssey for a few weeks and ive ridden it a few times, just short runs down the street. I had read a warning here on MA, always check the coolant level in the cylinder when you get one of these. I was finally able to get the fill plug out of the head and stuck a stick down in there to see what the level was. EMPTY. NADA. The only thing on the end of the stick was a little of the PB Blaster that I had been soaking that plug in since I got the moped. This moped was a "barn find", it was still dusty form being in some ones gma's garage for the last 30+ years. So I don't think it was ridden and overheated, and I only ran it for 10-20 minutes at a time. Fingers crossed.
I may just fill er up and run it, but since it was completely empty I would like to pull the head at least and see how things look. Thats when i started looking for head gaskets and reading posts here about them. I can't find any NOS gaskets or aftermarket. I did find some gasket sets on ebay's German classifieds site, they look to be almost homemade by a local moped shop.
Does anyone know what the original head gaskets were made from? I read someone say they were cork. Can I just get some fel-pro and cut my own, and use some Copper Coat on it?
