Hi, a long shot this but can anyone confirm whether the Perkins 4/99 rocker gasket is the same as the 4-108? (presumably the 4-107 is the same as the 4-108?)

Can't help you with the numbers, I'm afraid, but silicone Liquid Gasket fits all!

Don't think my old bike had a gasket left on it once I'd discovered this stuff!

Geof,

You can't really replace an eigth of an inch thick rocker gasket with silicone, and if you did you would soon be complaining about the noise coming from the top of the engine.

Hi Griff, thanks, I will try him. Had a bad experience with instant gasket a few years back, clogged an oil way - never did find one piston!

I have a pet hate with regards any form of oil leaks ,even ended up replacing my rocker cover gasket twice ,i overtightened the first one

it puzzel's me why they dont make them in Rubber like you get on Jap cars as they never seem to have much in the way of oil leaks ,or do they

Finny,

There is a knack. Take some standard bearing grease and give the gasket a good coating both sides and work it into the gasket. The gasket will then last ages and stay sealed it also helps keep it in place during fitment.
