    Kevin -- Yes-preferred to locate the right gasket - but if not easy to find - I would go to Napa Auto Parts - get some of the best gasket material I can buy and make my own. When I was a little kid (6 or 7 years old) with what I thought to be (a big motorbike - 7 1/2 hp) grandpa made all of his gaskets. I remember him pounding out many a head gasket - ALL SEEMED TO WORK..

    I think he needs the seal that goes around the crankshaft (it is prss fit into the crankcase halves). This would need to be an exact replacement. It may be a common size used in other small engines, so I would bring the old one to a small engine shop and try and physically match it to another manufacturers part.
