Exhaust Gasket

I put this report up on the Weasel FB page but as there was a common theme regarding this problem as reported by other weasel owners, I thought that it would be best to capture the information here on the forum. Started my weasel engine for the first time since a marathon 8 mile drive 😀 down to local lake and back on the previous weekend. See attached video. I found that the exhaust flange gasket had disintegrated and the exhaust was 'chuffing' into the engine compartment. I had made a gasket from non asbestos compressed gasket material but it appears that it was not the right choice of gasket material. I have ordered a Studebaker OEM gasket to replace the blown gasket. Hopefully the replacement gasket will be more resistant to the heat.
