STEEL-SHIM HEAD GASKET - 73.5MM
These uprated gaskets consist of three thin steel shims, riveted together to form a thickness of 0.030-inch. This particular gasket is custom-made by Cometic to suit 1275 engines offset bored to 73.5mm.
The dry-deck gasket is unique to MED and features blank water gallery holes, saving much machining time and cost on blanking the original water galleries in the block.
- 73.5mm offset bores to suit 1380/1460 competition engines
- 0.030" thick
- 3.15cc crushed volume
- Dry deck or regular style
- Multi-layer steel gasket
- Stainless steel outer layers coated for high temperature/chemical resistance
- PTFE topcoat for resistance to fret and improved cold sealing
We also keep a version for the BMW K1100 motorbike head conversion, which is slightly thicker at 0.052-inch.
It's recommended to lightly file of the edge of engine number tag location - just enough material for the gasket to sit flush.
