Exclamation Melted gasket

I'm new to this.
Got my motorized bicycle yesterday off craigslist, put a new chain and new tank in.
But during my first two rides on it the throttle wouldn't hold. I figured it was just the gas line that closed. And it worked afterwords.
But this morning I noticed it was leaking and the big gasket in them middle of the motor looked melted.

Can anyone suggest any links to buy an overhaul kit or gaskets?

Default Re: Melted gasket

Go to any autoparts store and get some gasket paper and make your own using the old gasket as a stencil.
There are many sites on here that have gaskets for sale. Just look around
