Question Anyone use liquid gasket in place of paper gasket?

Hi All, have a green machine trimmer, head gasket broke when taken apart, would like to use liquid form a gasket.
Will there be a problem running or starting as the liquid will not be as thick as the paper gasket thus leaving less room for the spark and ignition?

I wouldn't reccomend it, not only because of the thickness but also because of the heat that it will be exposed to. If you can't find an OEM gasket, you could cut one out of gasket paper.

Glad to help. Also note that you should try to match the thickness of your original gasket as closely as you can if you have to cut your own.
