Default Re: Quick question

I'm waiting for someone to tell him to J-B Weld it.

Actually I've done several using the method suggested by Ludwig. The gasket surfaces must be clean and flush with each other and a gasoline compatible sealer used. I've never had one fail yet. The difference in cylinder height with or without a gasket isn't enough to worry about compression or port timing. Not on these little Chinese 2 strokes.
