Base gasket question
« on: July 11, 2018, 04:37:38 PM »

Are the base gaskets the same on a S&S 117 kit the same as Screaming Eagle’s kit? Mine blew out and need to replace. Also used a quart and a half of oil in 500 miles. Sum ting not rite !

Not sure which you have the S&S or the HD 117 but the HD kit will use an o-ring in place of a base gasket

Well after tearing apart the engine for another issue, I pulled the cylinders off. Turns out the gasket wasn’t blowing out but was excess gasket tearing.
