Hello,
Need to make some homemade gaskets once in a while.
Looking online, I see a lot of Victor Reinz rolls or sale.
JV 101
JV 121
JV 128
None, however tell you what they are made of, and what application they are for, as in, gas, oil,
antifreeze, grease, or pressure ect.
I am looking for an all around material/number that works with the 3 most common, gas, oil,
antifreeze/glycol.
Any help would be appreciated
Thanks

Summit Racing is a dealer, but some are vague on what the material is.

Some are described as "cork rubber".

A call might get more information.

But as for a universal gasket material, there is really no such animal. Each has it's place.

If I were going to buy something to have on hand, it would be a medium thickness paper. That would cover the most common needs, but still, no way to predict what will come through the door next.

The type gasket is not so much dependent on the media being sealed, but more so the mating surfaces, the pressure, and the temperature.

Two machined surfaces, moderate temperature, reasonable pressure, would typically use thin paper material.

A machined surface and a rough cast surface would use a thicker paper.

A sheet metal cover to any surface would be a thicker paper, rubber, cork, something with a lot of compressability.

Exhaust or other high temp applications use a variety of composite, aluminum, other harder heat resistant materials. Silicone rubber is also high heat.

Many times a gasket also serves as a precision shim for setting pump cover to gear clearances, other shimming/sealing applications, bearing preload, etc. In those cases the exact thickness is critical.

Many times, the best home made gasket comes in a tube! Automotive high heat silicone is the easiest and most effective, but it has it's limitations.

Likely, the different part numbers are for different thicknesses.

Most generic composite gasket material WILL work for gas, oil, antifreeze, grease, or pressure within reason.

Should be useful for most things other than cylinder head gaskets and exhaust gaskets, IMHO.

The exception would be cork, which works well for valve cover gaskets, and the like, but wouldn't be good for much pressure, or places where the parts are clamped TIGHT together.

Check out your local parts store. They usually sell rolls of Felpro gasket material. (Blue) The black is rubberized.
