dead-soft header gasket - might have some made

Post #1 by hucklburry » Tue Jul 11, 2017 5:13 pm

I might be having a dead-soft aluminum (or copper) header gasket made, for my 250 crossflow with a header.

If I do, its just as easy to have a quantity made vs 1, so I was gauging interest in case I should have more than one made.

There isn't an Aussie only classifieds, so I apologize if this isn't the right place, its not really a money making venture for me, more like I'd save some money on mine with quantity....

Let me know if there is interest. Thank you --Jim

just buy a Remflex and be done. you can find them on EBay... 1/8" thick Carbon or Graphite and it works great on headers. make sure you buy the one made for a header.

I am looking at remflex's web page, can this be cut by hand? The pricing is similar to dead soft aluminum for material, I hadn't heard of this material before but thats not a surprise.

I don't see one listed for a crossflow head on Ebay for a 4.1l, I don't know of a US product that fits maybe there is?
