Yes! The flange is fixed at the rear end and sealed with a copper/asbestos washer. (now using an asbestos substitute) The forward end has a sliding tophat ring. This is best sealed with gasket cement coated string to ensure an air tight joint and allows for alloy crankcase expansion moving the cylinders apart with heat. Chris.
