Carb To Choke Gasket

Recommended Posts

Anybody have a source or this gasket?  It goes between the carb (Stromberg)  and choke on a 1938 Special.  The last two rebuild kits I bought didn't include it.  

Thanks, Tom

You can buy gasket material at any parts store and cut your own. It isn't hard. For one like that I would use a paper punch for the holes, and scissors or exacto knife to cut it out.

 

What is the gasket made of? We used to make them of brown paper bags or, for thicker gaskets, cereal boxes.

Rusty's right.  It shouldn't be too difficult to make a gasket for your carb.  I once made a gasket for a British Seagull outboard motor out of a discarded Church's Fried Chicken box.  I've found that NAPA stocks a pretty full range of gasket material.

 

Cheers,

Borrow the fingernail sissors from your significant other. With the curved tip, they cut curves fairly easy.

 

But you are buying kits from the wrong source. The better kits do include this gasket.

I believe that most gaskets for electric chokes are made of an asbestos covered metal to insulate them. That type of material should be available in sheet stock also.

We contact cement gasket material to the surface to be gasketed then simply take an Exacto knife and run it around the outside and around the inside of the various holes. Perfect fit and even easier than it sounds. Try it once and I'll bet you will never do it any other way.
