Custom MLS head gaskets
« on: October 01, 2021, 11:12:59 PM »

Does anyone have an idea where i can have an MLS head gasket made? I melted another one and ejected another freeze plug out this morning.

It's for a 99 kia Sportage FE3N engine. 

I've called Cometic and they said no to MLS but they said they can make a solid copper one. I have zero experience with copper head gaskets to know if that's a better option than stock graphite.

O-ring the head or block and run a copper gasket.

I've asked several machine shops and they said it's not possible without the correct fixture which no one has.

A copper gasket will seep coolant over time (WATCH it) and cosmetic amounts of oil over time.  But short of breaking or pushing through it they are reusable.  I think you may need to anneal with a torch between uses?  Be a good egg and research; I do dick for mechanical work anymore.

That's cool as fuck

Cometic used to make us custom shit all the time for the boats and even snowmobile engines.

I emailed gaskets-to-go  to get a custom MLS head gasket and they already have them for my engine. I ordered 3 to save on shipping.
