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,

gaskets

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:D

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. :D

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.

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

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

Thats a great resource, Kit, thanks for going to the trouble, as I recall, many years back I trained as a mechanic and we used a ball peign hammer to shape the gasket paper around the actual component that you are sealing, you have to be very gentle though ! much better to have the items drawn for you like they are here. If youre using the photocopier at work to print this stuff off you might have to experiment with the reduce/enlarge button as I doubt that it will print exactly 1;1 scale but I might be wrong.

I changed my sprocket cover gasket a couple of days ago - printed on a laser printer using Kits' template - so far so good. Just for info the printer is a HP 2600n and I used the manual feed function and I believe the paper I used is .8mm

Sweet! Thanks for the followup, Nobeard! :D

BTBM- Any modern printer (or even copier) should do 1:1 / 100% no problem. There are designers out there who would go on killing sprees over half a percentage point of reduction or enlargement! :eek:

Hi all. I tried to print these templates out, but tried on paper first. I went to line them up and they dont seem to fit together. Like the clutch cover, the two pieces just wont match! Please let me know if i am doing somehting wrong!!!

IIRC, there should be some overlap if it's a multi-page scan. Not sure what else to say; it may not be perfect. My plan was to spray-glue regular prints to the gasket paper, then cut out; I didn't even think of printing directly onto the gasket paper until someone else mentioned it.

If all else fails, I wonder if you couldn't lay the cover flat on the gasket material and wallop it with a rubber hammer...

Cheers,

Thanks for stepping up, Dave!

PB, not sure what to say. I just re-downloaded the files and verified that they work on my system, maybe you need to update your zip software?

Cheers,

Kit.. Ive just done that to see if it cures the problem, but i still get told that the file is either invalid or corrupt.. so ive got no idea what's causing it..
