Check copper gaskets unlimited (coppergasket.us) or coppergasket63 on ebay. Same guys. They've got all kinds of stuff.

make your own, buy a .040 piece of copper. cut a old cylinder off a 28 ci briggs, drill through the head bolts and sandwitch the copper between the jug and a piece of plywood and again drill through the head bolt holes, bolt it down, then find a hole saw that fits tight onto the jug, drill from underneath until you are through the copper, file to fit if the saw wasn't quite big enough, don't forget to anneal the new gasket, I'd put a couple of coats of spray copper head gasket spray on it , torque it a couple of times after it heat soaks, have fun

Reusable is one of the big things Iíd say. Old style headgaskets work good too, if you find one that isnít blown. They donít tear apart after being torqued and removed.

copper because the bore was so large it made the stock gasket to thin (talking width on top of the block), copper or O ring the head, copper worked just fine.
