Help! Gilbert head gaskets.

Post  Oldenginerod Thu Dec 18, 2014 3:27 am

As we have discussed previously, I'm trying to find a source of new copper head shims to fit the Gilbert 7. I grabbed some .074 Queen Bee shims but they are very slightly too large. (I guess I could try to trim them)
I measured up and think that Cox .049 timing shims may fit.
Can I ask, is there one of you out there with a Gilbert 7 who may have a Cox timing shim to try? If so, can you please drop the timing shim into the Gilbert cylinder & let us all know how it fits? I'm pretty sure the shims Bernie sells come in two different sizes, so the thinner of the two may be best if the diameter is suitable.
Thanks.

Rod.

Hey Rod,

I tried a timing gasket in my Gilbert, and it dropped right in. It IS a bit narrower than the original one, but looks like there's enough there to do the job.

Great Kim. Thanks for that. Might be time to stock up on the timing shims for other purposes. They're probably a bit thick, but a well sealing thick gasket is probably better than a leaking correct one. lol! I think the thinner one Bernie sells is 0.010". May not matter that much with a Gilbert.
