Lucky Phil Posted February 4, 2018 Report Share Posted February 4, 2018 Pete Roper kindly sent me a couple of these gaskets for my Grisso valve cover conversion and I thought I would give everyone a look at them. They appear to be a thin metal gasket with a pressure sensitive coating on both sides which is of a matt appearance quite different to the later Ducati rocker cover gaskets which are very much the same as the later Guzzi front crankcase metal gaskets. The later front crankcase gaskets also have a stamped raised profile which these Valpolini ones dont so they are quite different. Shown for comparison is a Later front crankcase gasket, the Valpolini and an original style composite rocker gasket. Pete swears by them which is good enough for me and it should get around the common issue of the composite gaskets breaking for no apparent reason. My last one I changed out about 6 months ago due leaking had for some reason decided to break. I dont overtorque stuff so dont know.
