Teflon Intake Gaskets---where to buy???

Post by GM-DR » Sat Apr 07, 2018 2:46 pm

A few years ago I bought .093 thick Teflon Intake Gaskets for my Drag Race 350 Chevy-I am still using them today-appx 10 intake manifold installs and re-installs-----------Now I am building another engine and I need another set, but I cant remember where I bought them ??? Any Help would be appreciated Thanks Greg :?:

Thank you for the plug but any water jet shop should be able to cut them. Attach the Teflon sheet to a sacrificial substrate as it is not rigid. I think you would want to just use water, not the grit as well. The gentleman across the street from me had a Calypso WJ and I observed that when starting a cut the grit was not finely focused. You would not want that excess grit spray to embed in the Teflon.

Sounds like a great gasket idea and wonder why the big name gasket makers haven't picked up on it?
So you use these with no sealer on either side?
