Joe, during assembly any grease will help hold the bearings in place.
As for gaskets, are you talking about the vertical split in the case? If so no gasket.

Suggest that you replace the seals while you are at it.

Re: Help with Quadra 35 and 40 repairs

Hi Joe I guess first, there should be NO gasketbetween the the crancase They are machined surfases, and made to go together without a gasket. When I put mine together, I put a thin layer of gasket cement on them, just to ensure a seal... The brass washer is there as a thrust washer as you noted. and third, there ain't no easy way.. What I do is to put the connecting rod in place, and cover all the set up with grease, I then use the grease to hold the bearings in place.. IT may take you a few times to do it, but it does work' If you download a CATALOGUE from Bennit, it will show you a breakdown and where the parts should go. Any parts you need for the motor you can get from Bennit, and it will take about 2 mail........... Al

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you and yours from all of us,,,,,,,,,,,,

Re: Help with Quadra 35 and 40 repairs

I rebuild and test run my US41 (Q42). It turned a zinger 18x10 at 6400 rpm, I was hoping to get a bit more rpm. It also seems to vibrate more than my Q35.

Any comments on either of these issues?

Hope everyone is enjoying some time with there families and thanks for all the help!
