if anyone has a head gasket and or a exaust gasket i could use thatd be great. I bought some gasket material at my local m/c shop and its air tight but it gets saturated with oil and leaks all over the engine. I used the. rest of that stuff for a base gasket. Time will tell if itll hold up. I need the head gasket cause i used both base gaskets i had cause the material i bought is very compressible. And i decked the head just a little more. I need some courser grit sandpaper... takes forever wth what i have. I can deal with this stuff in the summer just fine. But winter... my tolerance goes with the weather . i figured out the "detonation" problem I was having. It was the spark plug boot. And the spark plug. They were both resistor type. I thought it wouldn't be a problem but after awhile it got worse. I just put the old boot on and it went away. now I just have to get a iridium NGK plug. Still running rich with a 65 jet and the clip in the top notch.. Lost some compression with using two base gaskets. Should I deck the jug or the head for better compression?
