If you absolutely can not find the head gasket for your compressor or pump, you may be able to make one. I have done it on a few machines, in particular a pretty hefty old, old sears compressor.

Buy a roll of fiber gasket material (not the cork) from the auto parts store. Also get some gasket making sealent. Permatex makes one for high pressure applications. It's grey.
Method #1; Use the old gasket as template to cut out a new gasket from the fiber material. Use scissors and an exacto knife.
Method #2
Take the head and put it on a copy machine, and print out the picture. You may have to adjust the density.
Use the picture as template on the fiber gasket material (tape it down) and using scissors and an exacto knife, cut out the gasket.
You may need to study the head in relation to the gasket to determine any small holes etc, but this can work if you're neat and take your time.
Method #3
If taking a picture of the head does not show where the gasket needs to be cut in relation to piston block, there is another way to try this.
Get a roller bottle of ink used to re-ink an ink pad (office supply store). Roll out the ink on top of the piston block to show the outline of the gasket. You may need to clean the surface off with alcohol first. Place a piece of paper on the surface to transfer the ink. This will give you an outline to use as a template.
Smaller round holes can be made with a drill bit and drill, hole punch, etc. Trimming the gasket can be accomplished with a rotary tool(Dremel) , a fine file ,etc.
Make sure the head surface and block surface are totally clean of old gasket material.
Place a nice thin,even coat of sealant on both sides of new gasket, and bolt head down with even torque on all bolts.

Pajero overheating

It sounds like you had a blown head gasket and it was leaking into the oil or into the exhaust and being burned. if you look at the oil on the dip stick it may look milky. if the head gasket starts leaking internally then it can / will cause overheating

1987 toyota pickup with 22r keeps blowing head gasket

Your head bolts are stretched, when it got hot it weakened the metal in the bolts which means that the bolts cannot hold the needed tension on the head. Replace the bolts and you will stop blowing head gaskets. Also use Genuine Toyota head gasket, It will be a bit dearer but they are much better than aftermarket options.

Suddenly started smoking white smoke and seems to be losing power

White smoke is coolant being burnt. That with your lose of power would suggest a bad head gasket. A compression test could confirm it. Hope this helps.

I have a coolant leak in my 1995 camaro. The mechanic said it was where the timing cover meets the block. He said it looks like a gasket, and it is a hugh job to fix. What should I do?

It sounds like a head gasket.Do you overheat? Boil Over? If you do it is the head gasket.It is a big expensive job.There are sealers I have used available only online Seal a Head worked great.There is a test called an Engine sniffer that can positively confirm a bad head gasket.You must confirm.Look for my response on other overheating,Head Gasket issue on this site.Good Luck.
