About the head gaskets- I replaced a cylinder recently- "the jug" and then something got inside and scoured the cylinder- so I took it apart again- I've been playing around with two different 50 cc jugs- and I found that I got a lot of return with a couple of files-

it seems they just aren't finished off that well- and you really can see that if you take a file to the head- and ditto for the top side too-

file flat against them and they get really shiney and smooth comapared to what they were- the thin metal gasket can only benefit when in use then
