I'm close to completing my O-200 rebuild. I noticed in the Superior overhaul gasket set that I received EIGHT exhaust port stamped metal gaskets.
Is this something that I should know about? TWO gaskets per cylinder / exhaust port? They were dead-nuts on with everything else, so I'm thinking I'm missing some information.
ALSO: Do you apply sealant to the magneto mounting gaskets? Wouldn't think so, since timing is checked and adjusted at condition inspection, etc.
No sealent on the mag gaskits. The exhaust gaskits are a one time crush type. cheap to replace. You may want to look into the thicker reusable blow proof type gaskits for O-200.
Thanks for your time on the sonex bpf board. i remember our meetings on the osh flightline. My father and i built a waiex w jab3300. We are now building a cruzer. O-320 w big tires. half done.
Good luck finishing your build and getting flying.
