Moster Classic cylinder base Gasket


Recommended Posts

It is indeed to get the correct compression ratio (squish clearance).

You assemble the motor `dry` (cylinder and head fitted but without a base gasket), torque the head bolts to the correct spec and then set the `squish clearance` by placing a length of plumbers solder (minimum diameter 2mm, or use smaller diameter twisted together) down the spark plug hole placing the end so that it is at the edge of the cylinder (where the squish band is) and pull the engine over a few times.

This will squash the solder.

Measure it.

Work out which of the base gaskets in the kit will provide a squish clearance of 1.3 to 1.5mm.

Take cylinder off fit that bas e gasket, torque head and check again.
