I'll probably be doing that. I still have to open up the transmission first. Also the fillingstation doesnt have that item in stock.

Would that gasket set be the one Id need?

Default Gaskets......

There are only 3 gaskets that I remember...... the top cover which I did with a ball peen hammer and exacto. The other two can be traced on gasket paper for the PTO cover and the round input shaft flange. I got a set of hole punches from PA to speed up the process. In a pinch you can use heavy craft paper used for grocery bags or large HD leaf bags from garden centers. I like to coat the craft or gasket paper with silicon between thumb and index..... just a smear.... and let it dry before assembly.

Check your individual bearings for pitting as they are nasty for holding water over the years of sweating on the inside or rain water by the shifter.

Is your rear cover in good shape with all the bolts intact??? Just curious but what is the rear cover made of..... white metal or cast iron...... make sure you loctite the bolts to the short drive shaft u-joint bolts on the yoke.

Have fun.

Make your own from gasket paper of a thickness similar to what you take out (or a bit thicker to allow for some compression as you tighten the covers onto the case)? For the top cover, thickness isn't too critical. For the front and back covers you want to be close to original so that you don't add or remove much end clearance on the shafts. A variety of thicknesses should be available at any decent auto parts supplier, even some Canadian Tire stores....

It looks like Bob types faster than I do....

I would not recommend experimenting with papers other than gasket material for gaskets. The old cornflake box will make a better wick than a gasket...it will draw the oils out. Whatever you can't get form Canadian tire you will get from NAPA.

Re the PTO plate, most PTOs follow a very standard size. As such, the gasket is available from many sources. Being that the plate is fairly thin, you will want a reasonably thick gasket.

On a Universal carrier I am re-doing at work, I put all new gaskets when I rebuilt the transmission, and the PTO plate leaked. I ordered the plate for an Allison transmission and the gasket for an LSVW. Worked out fine. I could have just used RTV, but I wanted to do it old school.

In this day and age, you can also get away with RTV for the majority of applications, especially if you apply it properly. Run a bead around both gasket surfaces, let it set for an hour, then put them together. As Grant mentions though, don't use it if the retainer acts as part of the dimensions for the bearing preload.

Default gaskets

Just a word about gaskets..new technology has led me to have some intricate gaskets laser cut at the local "makers" shop. This is still a work in progress but I am trying to make gaskets for 975 radial engine carbs. All you need to do is take a photo and the tech guru can adjust to appropriate size.Rough/experimental gaskets can be cut out of regular paper until you get it right. Then use correct gasket paper. Only hitch is the guru does not want to use certain types of paper ie with rubber or compounds that burn abd make noxious fumes. BP

Maybe the attached scans are of use for anyone wanting to make there own gaskets (please check size on normal paper first before using actual gasket paper!).
The brown coloured gaskets are the ones I made myself on gasket paper as suggested by Grant. The black ones are the ones that came from a set I bought (can't remember which supplier it came from).

I actually used the homemade ones, and ordered a set as a spare....just so I could continue with the gearbox.

Please note that there is some difference in the gasket for the prop shaft side between the ones I made myself and the one available commercially. The one I made myself was actually copied from the one that came from my gearbox when taking it apart.

Hi Alex

I've been using a similar method to produce gaskets. My method is to scan into my computer at High Resolution either a new gasket or in the case of smaller parts putting the actual part on the scanner and scanning them. I then send the image from the computer to the printer which I load Manila Card Stock in and print out a nice full size gasket. Spray Permatex High Tack Spray on both sides, with two coats it saturates the card stock.

Your method of adding a ruler to the scan is a good double check on the size that the computer, or printer is not trying to out think us and re-scale things. Your PDFs are a good add to the MLU knowledge base. Have you already cross posted to the How-To heading?

Nice thing about this approach is you need a gasket you just go print one. How are you punching the holes?

Cheers Phil

Hi Phil,

I am using a variety of hole punches; a set with larger diameter punches in a red case as shown in the attachment, and another cheap Chinese set for smaller diameters. I am actually using the same set on rubber and canvas webbing as well....which works OK so far. Just make sure you are using the punch on a piece of soft wood, thick rubber or a cutting mat to protect the cutting edge from damaging.
Larger holes in the gasket are either cut by hand or done using the ball peen hammer method.

I always start with the holes and than cut the inside and outside contour of the gasket.....that works best for me. Doing it the other way round can lead to very thin areas in the gasket, or even cutting the gasket in half, if you punch the holes just a bit off.

I have only added tips from others so far, but should make some updates anyway

Yes, the function "scale to fit" is killing with this sort of stuff....it's easy to miss and your print may look 100%, but may actually be 98,7%!
