Like I said in my previous post,I'd make my own gasket,but how can I do that with cylinder studs in the way.Don't tell me to take them out either.Make your own gasket is the quickest,instead of waiting for one in the mail,then you can make the thickness that gets you optimum squish
Or wait and get the SLX one and see if it will work.
Thank you for explaining that to me Poge.Now I'm not quite as dumb of an oaf as I was before.Refers to what happens to solder shoved into the plug hole when the piston comes up against it and the bottom edge of the combustion chamber. The resulting flatness of the solder is measured to determine the clearance between the top edge of the piston and the top edge of the cylinder/bottom edge of the combustion chamber -- commonly referred to as the "squish band" and usually a distinctly visible band at the bottom of the combustion chamber/top of the cylinder wall.
I thought about doing that Tim as I had a SXL that only needed the top portion for the handle & reed valve replaced on a saw I did 1 1/2 yrs.ago.I make those a 2 piece gasket. No need for it to be one piece.
