Hey guys....Anyone know of a shop here in town that can make gaskets? I need an oil pan gasket by tomorrowand I don't think anyone is going to have them in stock for a 94 ZX7 or that they could get one in by tomorrow afternoon?

most auto parts stores usually have bulk gasket material. . .you'll have to cut your own

They are the best industrial gasket shop in town.

You will probably have to bring them the oil pan.

Found 2 places in town that have gasket making machines with the appropriate software capable of cutting exact OEM gaskets.

Your 2 choices that I found are:

Yamaha of Houston (near 1960 and Perry)
and
Choice Motorsports (out in Humbe near the Hardy Toll and 1960)

FYI for peeps who need to search this topic later on.

Thanks guys......

get some gasket material, take a ball peen hammer and tap gently around the edges of the oil pan base. It will cut the material while you tap it. Put a couple bolts with washers to hold the material in place untill you got it tapped out though. Thats it and youll be done in 5 mins.

Ended up getting the gasket at Motorsports Yamaha of Houston on 1960 and Perry Rd. I think it's the same spot Ted Biele (sp?) does sales at.

Bump for the noobs!!! Running by there today to pick up a kawi gasket for the KX250....

Houston Motorsports (1960&Perry) HAS a gasket cutting machine for those in a hurry (like I am today) and don't have days to wait on shipping.
