Special Nippy head gaskets have been made by Ian Williams. “I am afraid that all sports head gaskets have now been sold, I will not be getting more made unless I have a minimum order quantity of 10. Currently I am about to get a batch of solid copper gaskets made which are of course reusable and are far better at transferring heat between head and block, however they will be to standard HC profile rather than Sports. There is currently not enough demand for me to finance a batch of Sports gaskets and then hold them in stock for the occasional sale, however if I could get enough expressions of interest I will produce solid copper gaskets to Sports profile, we have produced the Cad patterns ready to go. Cost for a small batch would likely be in the region of $85NZ each, but remember they will be mechanically stronger, and can be annealed and reused many times.”  (July 2017)
