Rich, thickness and material may depend on the area and location of the gasket needed. Can you be more specific or show pictures?

Hi

I should have said where they are going  :facepalm:

A few that spring to mind

The blanking plate on the bottom of the regulator, this sits inside the boiler

The dome which sits over the regulator and bolts down to the large bush in the top of the boiler

The cylinders will need gaskets, front and rear cylinder covers, valve chests etc

Cheers

Hi

I emailed GLR kennions and asked them about the gasket they supply.

Richard Clark replied and included the spec sheet
