PL head gasket

Classic Italian Bikes in Holland is always good for PL parts. They have a 500 head gasket listed for 22 Euros ...

Otherwise you will most likely have to try suppliers in Italy which is where most of these bikes were sold.

Phil Hitchcock (roadrace@cci.net.au) has a number of these in stock and I saw Tony Brancato yesterday and we are going to look into making some new ones.

I have an early engine with the raised liners that I am in the process of rebuilding, hence the head gasket!

What i am after is the sizes of the two sealing disks that go on top of the liners up into the head and what are they made of.

Can you e-mail be details please chris.bushell@ducatisportingclub.com

500 gtl head gasket

I emailed you but I am going to post it here too...

Not sure which part you are
referring to. Is it 0620.88.095? If that's the case, many on this board
say that it's an error because the gasket rings are built right into the
head gasket. If you are referring to the circular metal rings that are
stamped into the head gasket (they seal between the top of the cylinder
and the cylinder head), they are exactly 8cm in diameter. Hope this
helps.

Does anyone want a 350 head gasket? I have an extra one that I thought was for the 500 but (obviously) it didn't fit when I took things apart. I ended up ordering one from Giovanni in the Netherlands, who seems to have the biggest selection of NOS parallel twin parts around. I also ordered some points from him since mine are totally pitted out...
