I have a 1925 Elto Rt that has original paint that looks great. I don’t think its even been apart. I can see that the pistons have some carbon build-up on them and wonder if I should take it all apart and clean everything up? What are the jug to the block gasket like? Metal? Where do I find them, or do I hammer out my own?

one can hammer out your own pretty easily…. I did that one my first one… worked very well

If you remove the cylinders and don’t replace
the gaskets with material of the same thickness
the exhaust manifold wont fit. Today’s oil will
do wonders to remove the carbon deposits from
the oil of the past. Also if you don’t install
the rings exactly as the are now they will be
no longer seated although I believe there are
pined and that shouldn’t be a problem.

I’d leave it as is and run it . I doubt that carbon will have any effect on it unless exhaust ports are really carboned up. Running it with todays oil could even help clear some of that out.September 15, 2021 at 7:47 am #246699
Thanks Guys. Yeah, I didn’t know if the head gaskets were something special. As far as the oil goes, can I use 2 stroke oil mix or use old fasion straight 30w? Maybe I’m being to annaul.September 15, 2021 at 8:51 am #246701
They didn’t have 2 cycle oil in 1925
but they do now and that what I use
in my Super Eltos. How about the gear
case. Have you cleaned it out and
filled it with fresh 105 or corn head

Thanks Boat House. I was going to use a “red grease”, Multiplex 220, #2. I never heard of corn head grease.September 15, 2021 at 8:59 am #246703
I found it Boat House. Thanks for looking out for my Elto !!
