    I’m refreshing my ’54 Fleetwin and wondering which gaskets I can make on my own? If I need to buy new, does it matter if I use Sierra or OMC/BRP brand gaskets? Thanks in advance.

    It’s really up to you, do you want to mess with making your own or not. I haven’t found any fault with Sierra gaskets — yet.

    Thanks for your replies. Ed, i just sent you an email for your prices. Am I supposed to use 2 gaskets for the exhaust housing to power head seal? I’m seeing some ad online that sell them in pairs.

    From the factory, they used just one exhaust cover gasket between the baffle plate and the power head. The baffle plate to exhaust cover was sealed with some type of sealant. Some of us prefer to use a second gasket instead of relying on just sealant for the baffle plate to exhaust cover connection.

    If you take the exhaust cover off, make sure you clean up and inspect the baffle plate, and especially the lower half of the plate. Pin holes are common, and they allow water to spray into the exhaust ports.

    Great choice on your parts vendor. If you need a new plate Ed may have one for you.

    The to gaskets powerhead to EXHAUST HOUSING to not apply to the 7.5hp. But if you really mean exhaust COVER, see above.
