Sorry Taffy,
I no longer have said gaskets in inventory.
Cometic in the USA has my master and will likely oblige those in need.

In a pinch or when one is not available sometimes a viable
option is to make a head gasket from a sheet of copper the correct thickness.All the old british twins used copper head gaskets although that is not much of a recommendation.
My first road racer was a Ducati 350 SOHC bevel gear shaft,it was cool because there was no head gasket,metal on metal, which was handy because I recall having it apart often......nsman

Be sure to use plenty of "Alumi-Seal" leak stopper lest you have built in water injection.

Hi Taffy,
What I have done in the past is remove the OEM gasket fire ring, groove the cylinder and install a piano wire fire ring.

Hope this helps.

Best Regards,
Dale
