I'm OK for now - no need to send money yet.

I'll wait to end-October, then finalise the order. It will probably be November(ish) before I will need to see peoples cash.

Cheers,
Harv

Hi, I would like a head gasket as well please as I am just in the process of of striping down my fc motor for a rebuild. What is the time frame for them as I would like to have it up and running by Christmas and also what else is involved in it obviously you don't just wack on a gasket and that's it, do you have to enlarge the water jacket holes? .Cheers Greg M.

Yes, you need to drill (or die grind) out holes in the head. The gaskets come with a copy of the original NASCO instructions.

This run of gaskets might be ready by Christmas, but more likely early new year.

If you need the motor before Christmas, shoot me a PM and I'll find you one of the earlier batch.

Cheers,
Harv

Ladies and Gents,

A gentle reminder that I would like your nominations for these gaskets by the end of October please. Nominations I have to date (please let me know if I have missed anyone):

FX/FJ forum:
Smog   (2 gaskets)
Calamine Blue (4 gaskets)

FB/EK forum
Blacky (9 gaskets)
59 wagon (2 gaskets)

FE/FC forum:
Wookie 66 (1 gasket)
RET (2 gaskets)
Fraze (9 gaskets)
JohnBM (6 gaskets)
Gp (6 gaskets)
Rusty_T (3 gaskets)
Chucati (2 gaskets)
Fatboy1932 (2 gaskets)
Graham_fuller (2 gaskets)
Pbh0069 (2 gaskets)
Fe_ute (2 gaskets)
RM-special (2 gaskets)
My8thholden (2 gaskets)
Pt58 (2 gaskets)
Naith05 (3 gaskets)

Ozrodders forum
3240 (2 gaskets)
Greg N Smith (1 gasket)

Total: 66 gaskets

In early November, Iíll send out a reminder. You get the month of November to pony up the funds to me. Last time round I only had two guys who didn't bother paying. I'll place the order, and AA Gaskets will let us know the timing. When the gaskets arrive, I'll parcel them up in plywood (like last time) and send them to you. Note that it is cheaper if you combine postage with a few mates, or as a Club.

Cheers,
Harv

No problem.

I have nearly 90 orders, and have sent an email to AA Gaskets to firm up pricing and timing. I'll round the order out to 100. Will let you all know once I hear back from them.

Cheers,

Just to re confirm to members who havenít as yet realised the benefits of the modified head gasket , I have had our FE since 1978 & it has always been a problem re overheating ,three trips over the nullabor to e/a nats did it for me . We had A problem with crank end float so I thought Iíll kill two birds with the one stone . & had the new gasket fitted when Harv organised the first run , what a difference , as I said prev I have two temp sensors , head & top rad tank , the two readings are now on avg 2 deg difference . Today in Perth wa , it was 32 deg ambient temp : the old girl sat on 72/ 73 c on a long run , never achieved before . More than happy , even the engine co .have asked for a few of the gaskets ,happy days 🍺🐌

Please put me down for 2.
Any idea how far off these are, as I am half way through building my grey. Will be back together in about 3 weeks.
