So do they need a spacer or are they made for the solo like oem thicker base? Just wonder if a dolmar cylinder copy needing a spacer.

Says 79cc... 681 should be 81cc?

I've bought a few of those, made for 7900 but came with thin and thick flat steel base "gasket"

The hard flat steel spacers are problematic in that they tend to crack the plating at the bottom of the bore/cylinder base if the plating isn't dead Flat with the base. I've had this issue on Mahle and other cylinders that have been re-plated so it's not unique to the AM jugs but can be an issue using the metallic base gaskets.

I'm not sure the 79cc part of the description applies to the 681. The ad copy says the cylinder will increase the displacement of the 665 and the 675 to 79cc. Looks to me like it is supposed to be a direct swap for the 681, but a big bore kit for the 665 and 675.

While we are on the subject of slugs and jugs, has anyone tried this one:

I've got a 667 that needs a kit and was wondering if this was any good.
