Stihl Gaskets
About Stihl gaskets:

The most common gaskets found on Stihl
equipment include a cylinder base gasket,
crankcase gasket, exhaust gasket and a
carburetor mount gasket. The cylinder base
gasket is usually a paper felt or cork gasket
and this gasket is important for maintaining
crankcase pressure. Crankcase gaskets are
usually paper felt and also maintain
crankcase pressure along with sealing the
two halves of the fuel and oil tanks on some
models. Exhaust gaskets used on Stihl
equipment are made from various materials
including plain graphite and metal clad
graphite. Carburetor gaskets on Stihl models
are unique from many other brands in the
use of a rubber boot between the carburetor
and cylinder head on many models. Other
Stihl models use a paper felt carburetor
mount gasket.

Complete gasket sets are also available for
most Stihl blowers, chainsaws, chop saws
and trimmers. These gasket sets usually
include all gaskets required for a complete
rebuild of the specified model or models.
This can also save money over purchasing all
the gaskets individually.
