Whats gonna happen when all us "older guys" die off? :(


We just gotta hope the younger ones learn as they get older!  Some will, some won't.

speaking of gasket material , I just got done making a few for my cub, I got mine at O'Reilys its " Fel-Pro Gaskets " Rubber-fiber sheet , 1/32" thick , it says for oil,water & gasoline. I'm going to try this for now on the carb,but would like to try a thicker gasket when I get a chance to look around. Its actually the same size as the new carb gasket I bought at the tractor & truck repair shop.So I'm guessing it will be fine, Waiting to find a good set of hole punches to I can start on the rearend gaskets,it'll be alot easier. lol

I was able to find some of this at the local parts store.  They had this, some 1'64" thick paper fiber material and cork.  The first store (where the kids tried to sell me cork) had a couple of other kinds that were a little thicker but none said oil or gas. I think their thickest material was 1/16" thick.

I'm impressed. I'm surprised the young guys knew what a carburator was.



I'm impressed that "young" guys were actually working!
