Norge timing case gasket reusable?
« on: May 09, 2019, 10:42:16 AM »
Have to swap an oil pump for a buddy on a low-mileage (only 8K) 2007 2V Norge this Saturday.  I overlooked the possibility that I might need a replacement chest gasket on hand in case I damage the original. This engine comes stock with the improved steel reinforced gasket. Anyone know the likelihood that it will be reusable?  I have the option of overnighting one from a well-known supplier (thanks, Rick!), just trying to decide  whether a careful individual  is normally not going to have an issue with messing up that gasket and reusing it.

Alas, also well acquainted with Mr. Murphy and his Law...  :sad:   ;-)  JW

I have seen the rubber come off of them w/you pop it off. I'd be safe. I'd say 60/40 chance it will need one, old style ones still work too.

I just did the one on my ‘07 Norge and took Pete’s advice regarding this question.
He said that clearly a new one was the go, but he’s re used the original metal one with a dose of copper gasket spray in the past.
I did as he said and had no problems at all.
