    The cork gaskets are .125" thick. As Tom said, the cork gasket is a composite and I don't know if they would hold up to modern fuel.

    I'll measure them but they are oem. I always put them smooth side to the the tank and oil them occasionally. They do wear out and after fifteen years thinking of replacing them as they leaked for the first time on a run last month. But then I forgot to turn my petcocks off but they have never done that before. I'll send you a oem set if you would like.
