Default Fairbanks Morse 32E

I have a FM model 32E 14X17 single cylinder engine. I am in need of NEW head gaskets including the copper fire ring and the cooling jacket gaskets. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

something like that you will probably be making yourself out of a large sheet of gasket material.
Copper fire ring could be made from annealed copper wire possibly?

Get sheet rubber for the water ports, copy the originals. If you cant find an original fire ring the copper wire might be the way to go.

Do you still have the old gasket? I have had good results by wrapping Teflon pipe tape around old gaskets if they are not in bad shape.

Question Re: Fairbanks Morse 32E

A few years back FM web site would give the name of the Company that could supply some of the parts for the 32E and some other 32's. J.R.

If you only need the head gaskets try Gaskets to Go a sponsor here.
I tried to cut my own for my 45A it looked like crap. The ones he makes are beautiful and reasonably priced.

On another note, the link to WW Williams company lists the FM 45A as one of the engines they support.
I'm very curious to know what, if any, parts they would have a model that ended production at less than 50 engines.
