Default Engine Gasket Rebuild Kit

I'm hoping to start rebuilding the engine soon and will need a good gasket kit. CIP has this one, any thoughts on it? Any better kits out there?

Like, completely tearing the engine down to the bare block kind of rebuild? If so, then yes, this kit should be fine.

Okay, gasket kit has arrived. Problem... I don't what MOST of these are for. This will be my first engine rebuild.

Bag One. Push rod seals?


Bag Two. More push rod seals?


Bag Three. Exhaust and cylinder gaskets I think.


Bag Four. These look like mostly exhaust gaskets.


Bag Four - The other side. What is this one with the louvers?

Mix of case and oil seals. The big o-ring is probably the crank/flywheel seal. The mid-size o-ring would be the cam seal, I think. Some might be gaskets for the cooling tins.
Bag Two. More push rod seals?

Push rod seals here; the large seal is the oil pan gasket set. Not sure what the copper ones are, though.
Bag Three. Exhaust and cylinder gaskets I think.

Cylinders don't use gaskets, they use spacers when needed. Otherwise they sit right on the deck of the engine. Hard to tell what's in there, but likely anything that bolts onto the deck has a paper seal on it. The oblong ones are for single port intakes on the manifold side. The fiber ones are probably for the fuel pump.
Bag Four. These look like mostly exhaust gaskets.

Mix of exhaust and intake for both single and dual port engines. Odd they would give you all that, though.
Bag Four - The other side. What is this one with the louvers?

The oblong ones are the exhaust gaskets. The louvered one above goes under your generator/oil fill stand - louvers down. It's a splash guard to keep the oil from going up and out the vent. You'll have a matching paper gasket for this, without the louver center.
There's probably some gaskets that you'll need that aren't in the kit. Get your Bentley and really read it - but frequently won't tell you where a gasket needs to go. Take lots of photos when you disassemble and make copious notes when you find a gasket. Never rebuilt a motor myself... don't have the patience for it!

Don't listen to Rick. Just tear it all apart and then start matching gaskets.

... and on a more serious note pictures would be great. Post them up as I know others (including myself) would more than likely find them helpful.

Yep, there's that, too! Those kits typically have more gaskets than the engine needs, but yeah, match up what you take out if you can!
