Well I'm back, still working out my power problem. The cylinder bores are OK. We have the head reconditioned, found heavy hard deposits clogging the head ports. Stuff was hard enough boiling, then blasting wouldn't remove it. With the valves out chipped it out with small chisel. I can locate standard rings, but locally we're stymied for gaskets. Head gaskets are the real problem. Any help appreciated. jack

jack bycraft,

Right now there are no gasket sets generally available for the 206 and 220 overhead valve engines. Federal Mogul stopped making all 206/220 gaskets about three years ago. Victor Reinz dropped the same gaskets in early 2013. No amount of begging, or pleading, will get them to start up again. The company that holds the rights to the 206 head gasket tooling; offered it to me if I would make gaskets for them. I turned down the offer because I did not want to be locked in to being a job shop for a thankless huge corporation. The tooling for the original 220 gaskets was scrapped when McCord Gasket was swallowed. I also saw the quality, or lack thereof in the final gasket sets. I decided that making my own tooling would produce gaskets that actually fit the iron. The nice people at Charles City sold me iron prints and new CAD drawings were made. It took a while to find a shop that would make dies to cut the new materials specified. Absolutely no cork or straight paper was to be used. All the former cork gaskets were to be cut, or molded from butyl rubber. All former paper gaskets were to be cut from InterFace Solutions materials. I hate cork and paper gaskets. They shrink, rot, tear, and generally fail in short time. Most of the die shops ran like scalded dogs when the material specs came up.

On 15 January the bill was paid for tooling to make new gaskets; including new OEM type copper, fiber, steel head gaskets. I was promised that I would get the tooling proofs in sixty days. Right now I am holding my breath for the tooling and first samples. Hopefully there will be gaskets to pass around at the Cookport Pennsylvania and Rice Lake Wisconsin shows.

If you are in a hurry; I understand that the #10V13667 head gaskets are still available, for a while. Contact Welters Farm Supply 417-498-6496, Wendell Everett at 740-922-3335, Foland Farm Machinery at 308-254-3011, or drop me a line. I have a lot of loose 206/220 gaskets, but can not guarantee a full set, for a few more months. As far as oversize pistons, valves, guides, bearings, seals, etc; that stuff is on stock.

Happy wrenching.

jack bycraft,
Right now the tooling is almost finished for the #10A10008 and #10A10007 water tubes. This hillbilly has to get on the stick and get some A56 tubing ordered.

I hate to solder pin holes and then sweat wipe. Guess I did it too much in my younger days. If you are using soldered water tubes; be sure to use new #10A5956 'O' rings and lube them with silicon grease where they touch the solder. For some reason, the 'O' rings must 'wear in' to a tube that has been solder sweated. We never lathe polished our tubes. Something for me to contemplate.

On the water tubes, I get them clean nut shell blasting works good, run the silver, dress down with a fine file the polish with progrssively finer emery tape to a high sheen. You know you're done when you can see small dots of silver where the pitting was. jack

NAPA used to have a very good Victor gasket set for the overhead valve 206. It was always short about 4 of the water tube 0-rings, though.

I don't know if there are NAPA stores in Canada or not.

I have been hearing this alot lately! Parts suppliers here in Canada don"t seem to want to even try to source any parts. I"m rebuilding a Jetstar 2 right now but diesel. I get calls all the time about 206"s being tough to get parts for. Not true. My email is open.

Hi we're located in Ontario (south west) What can you reccommend as a source. I've done the Carquest thing they are the closest, rings but no gaskets. I'm guessing you're a Saskatchewan telephone. jack

I would think Welters Farm Supply in Missouri would have the gaskets. If you need a phone number let me know. They do occasionally show up on ebay. I think there might be a complete gasket set on there now.
