Default oil pump gasket

is there one?


Honda bond?? form a gasket?? make your own?:
leaking like a sieve
NO one seems to have one, on line or in person except a 300.00 complete gasket kit

My dad used to have a tiny ball pein hammer with which he used to make gaskets. He'd simply hold the paper on the surface requiring the gasket, and lightly tap around the edges of the surface with the ball face of the hammer, thus cutting out the new gasket. Trick, and quick, which made that hammer STRICTLY off-limits to a frequently careless little kid.

And the first time I saw that was on the side of the road, in New Mexico in 1969. One of our Motor Pool sergeants was making an axle gasket for a 5-ton. He did just that. I had never seen that before. Obviously, it just works...

Tap out a couple of the bolt holes first,then drop a bolt in the holes. Keeps the gasket material from sliding ,and attitude more positive.

Dad was in the army-- maybe that's where he learned it.

Its very common practice to use the ball peen hammer. I have the same very small one you speak of, affectionately referred to as "baby hammer"
