Question 4 Cylinder LeRoi Help

Had to take the head off a 4 cylinder LeRoi engine to unstick a valve. Now I need to find a head gasket and the little round copper gaskets, or something like them, for the manifold. Checked the local auto parts store and NAPA with no luck. The local auto parts store was able to tell me that the engine is a Model D140, 3 1/2 X 3 5/8 bore and stroke. Does anyone have any idea where I might be able to get the gaskets I need and what the torq specs might be for the nuts? Has head nuts instead of bolts. Also, the guy mentioned that there was a D140P and D140W. I'm sure the letter designation has to do with the application of the engine, but does anyone know what application goes with the letter? Mine is mounted to a Marlow Pump. Thanks.

BobRR, Would you happen to have a phone number and or address? Guess it's safe to assume they don't have a website as I did a search and nothing came up except for references to the name. Thanks, Bill

If those are copper gaskets, put a flame from a torch to them, get them hot but not rediculusly turning colors- hot and they will expand, then you can re-use the copper gaskets again! i do it all the time if it's a copper gasket.
done this also with couple of head gaskets one time, corce i think thats why they stoped making head gaskets out of copper becouse they found they can be re-used. i dont recall every being able to see the copper expand, corce it's been a while sence i ran into a copper gasket, but, you'll know they expanded when you go to remount an tighten everything down again.

Well, I guess it's true what they say, that you should never assume

Skylar:
Yes, as a matter of fact, they are copper. And now that you mentioned it, I have heard of that being done. Now if I could only find the torq specs. for the head nuts

Thanks a bunch guys.
