Cool find (for me anyway!) G503 1940s Paper Gasket


Recommended Posts

Hey everyone!

 

So I was taking apart my old knuckle seals on the G503, and was surprised to find a paper gasket (ok that I did expect to find, but definitely not the markings on it) with some old markings. Because of the way it was cut to fit the seal, I can't read the full name of the company that made it. I think it is probably from the 1940s, but wondered if the partial manufacturer name rang a bell? Never saw a marking on these before.

Thanks for any ideas what the manufacturer's name might be!

Hi everyone!

 

So it turns out it was the partial name of "Vellumoid", which has been in the business of making gasket material for a long time (and still is!). I'm familiar with the company, but sure didn't expect it on the G503 and the partial letters threw me off. Cool to find that out.

Dude that is cool...small time capsule...love finding old stuff like that when wrenching

 

Hey, thanks! I like finding little details like that too. Usually a gasket is torn, or oil soaked, but that one came apart and revealed such a crisp clear sight that I almost couldn't believe it!
