Gasket Templates

Here are 2 zip files full of TIFF files for use as templates for making gaskets. The material used for more recent Triumph gaskets is called InterFace TS-9013. It is probably better to use original Triumph gaskets than to attempt to make your own from these templates, but it is probably better to make some from gasket paper & these templates than to use some sort of liquid goop. To the best of my recollection, these should be printed out at 150 DPI & 100% without resampling.

These files are my own creation; I explicitly grant the license to use them to anyone involved in working on T3 motors.

Cheers,
-Kit

Thanks Kit - great resource and hope I never need most of them.

The outline of the countershaft sproket cover gasket is most useful. have printed all and will put in cold storage. Now I wonder if you can put gasket paper through a photocopier - best tried at work!

Thanks and regards- Kiwigeoff

Interesting idea... I don't know if you can get gasket paper in cut-sheet sizes, but you could surely cut it down....

Anyway... According to Wikipedia, the fuser in a laser printer / copier generates temperatures as high as 392* F. InterFace TS-9013 is spec'ed for peak temps of 550* F.

You can blame it on me if anything goes wrong.

Cheers,

Great resource kit and very useful in an emergency (if only just to get to the dealership to buy the real ones). The question is, what is InterFace TS-9013 (is it a certified grade of paper) and where can you buy it ??

Cheers

Steve, InterFace TS-9013 is a gasket material made by InterFace Sealing Solutions. I haven't the foggiest idea where one might buy it. I am also fairly certain that just about any gasket paper will do for the short term, and anything that matches the specs linked above will do for the long term.

Cheers,
-Kit

Thumbs up

Thanks Mottley,

You know I might just buy a couple of sheets and have a go. Given the crazy prices that Triumph charge for some of the gaskets, it might just prove to be very usefull.

Cheers
Steve

I am going to have a go at making a sprocket cover gasket on my laser printer at work - anybody know what the paper thickness should be? The specs given for ts-9013 seem to cover everything except thickness
Cheers
