Rope gasket in air cleaner can

I was wondering about that rope-looking gasket in the air cleaner canister, wondering if or what people generally use as far as making one.
It seems to be a cork-type thing with some sticky stuff on it.
I have some rope that size if I can go that route or I also have cork gasket material but its flat of course but wonder if I can make 3 or 4 cork ones and glue them together? I recon something should be there so it all stays kinda tight/sealed so only clean filtered air can get thru and not junk like small clippings and suck.
Any rules of thumb besides getting a new one?

Re: Rope gasket in air cleaner can

I don't recall a rope gasket in the induction system.

Can you post a pic, or a part number from an IPL?

Crap, the first time I didnt take a picture of something. I would go out there right now in the cold rain but I tore it out. I noticed on my parts LI that it has the same air filter set-up and there is a flat rubber gasket atop the aluminum part that holds the canister and I dont think I bought one of them but might have when I got a cpl new filters but can find one Im sure but the rope type I found was inside of the canister at the top of it held up there by that sticky stuff that was on it. I think it was the larger of the two.
I guess someone could have put it in there.
I'll get some pix of it tomorrow.

Thanks

Re: Rope gasket in air cleaner can

I just looked at the 'sticky's" section on the page that says something like " gasoliene & magneto and something else, its about at the very bottom of the page but anyhow they show it I thing and are calling it # 15 and a "Gasket" and it doesnt look flat to me but who knows.

OK had to go out w/dog but here it is.
Both sides

I guess the part number would be L-832 8.

Sorry I was so moronic about that, long day yesterday lol.

L-834? As in https://www.gravelymanuals.com/pdf/Model_L_IPL_0463.pdf page 7?

L-832-E is the actual filter element. There's a wix replacement for that, but I don't have the number for it handy. It doesn't look like your pic though, it looks like you've got the gasket under the filter assembly.

On some of my machines, those appear to be made of cork, though I don't know if that was original or somebody's replacement. I would think you could make one out of cork or similar thickness rubber, or or even several thicknesses of heavy gasket material.

I just took a pic of the LI parts air intake and checked out the flat washer on the top of aluminum piece and its flat and made of cork so that I can make easy but looking at pics of mine back when I was taking it apart it has the flat one to, cant find it but its in the picture wich I'll post as well but that darn rope of an affair was wrapped up inside of the top of bigger canister and kinda stuck to it wich could explain the sticky stuff on it. I guess I'll make them both.

The two with the FRAM filter is my L when I got it wich is the one Ive been working on and the other two are from LI parts tractor and as can be seen both of them have the flat cork washer . Im gonna try to find the LI filter canister and see if it has the rope gasket in it just to see what the heck is going on with them.
Thanks

Re: Rope gasket in air cleaner can

Yea the pictures are all old ones, the LI and the L when I got it, but I looked at the parts list you had on your'e post and it is confusing w/the L-834 gasket and them the L -832 -R rubber seal ring for L-832 E , pretty confusing.
But what I thot was a rubber O ring atop the air filter bracket on both my LI parts machine and my L that Im working on is actually made of cork also.
But I got so sidetracked on the hood and handle bars I spent hrs on that stuff because I kinda noticed I had to get the h-bars on before I could put on the shifting levers and because the hood goes in same hole as h-bars wich I had on already my bolts were to short so I had to go to auto zone to get longer ones.
But the thing that ruined my whole day and also took all day was getting that *&^%[email protected] driving had bracket, handle clamp and clutch rod brace. The whole mess on right side took a longer bolt because of that " L " brace that holds up the clutch rod or " operator rod" I call it, getting that nut on the bolt inside of the fan shroud with the tips of two fingers is murder and I dropped a washer down there somewhere and cant find it.
I pulled out my hood I painted from its hiding place and it had mold on it from the condensation in my car-port/shop and it was covered but I guess the fender cover that was over it stayed damp but good ol'e Turtle wax took good care of that.
A full day with the Gravely for sure and I'll do it tomorrow to.
