Carb Float Bowl Gasket Materlal

pacomotorstuff

Coast to Coast
I've an old Kawasaki enduro carb I'm working on - very clean inside and no issues except for a missing float bowl gasket. A DPO had tried to use some sort of sealant, which lasted about a minute before it started leaking.
Has anyone found sheet gasket material that works for float bowl gaskets? I can find rebuild kits for it, but pretty stiff prices considering I just want a gasket.
Let me know.
Thanks,
Pat

Your local auto supply store should have gasket material in flat sheets.

Napa has it Pat. I got a full sheet ages ago and been using it for this kind of thing for a while. Still have prob half the sheet left.

Make sure your fuel level is below the gasket flange. I haven't seen a carb yet designed to run with normal fuel level above the float bowl flange line.

Pulled a roll of FelPro Karropak off the store room shelf and I'll be jiggered, it says, "for sealing oil, coolant and gasoline". Never knew, always just used it for engine gaskets.
Thanks,
