    Default gasket set for 1.4L C3

    Hi
    Am replacing the head gasket with a gasket kit from one of the oem suppliers. ALtho supplying the vin and the engine model, the metal manifold to cat. convertor gasket was a 3 hole and not 4 hole one..
    Have attached a pic showing those parts/seals im not sure where they go.
    Ive numbered the parts in the pic.
    Would appreciate someone familiar with the C3 cylinder head confirming where each
    part goes. cheers
    Have also attached a pic showing the old head gasket gasket set for 1.4L C3-img_3620.jpggasket set for 1.4L C3-img_3639-1-.jpg

    I think some of the gaskets belong with the early 1.1 and 1.4 motors.

    It looks otherwise, like a sump plug seal washer, a temp sender seal washer, block drain seal washer, pair of tappet cover fibrous washers, maybe an O-ring for the throttle body to manifold, fibre gaskets for the metal type intake to head, either cam sprocket end or distributor drive end oil seal, water pump O-ring, thermostat housing square section seal, possibly a pair of mechanical fuel pump gaskets? Certainly different to the VRS I bought.

    Gotta say that old head gasket is one of worst condition in use gaskets I've seen for a while.

    thanks Addo. Will help heaps.
    Yes the gasket was woeful. The fibrous gasket material has swollen and split on its underside surface where its exposed to the coolant between the liners and the block. I dont think the gasket design is very good in this area...The header tank was pretty gloopy with emulsified oil. There wasnt much sign of the oil being emulsified in the oil galleries or under the rocker cover. Just a little 'mayonnaise' under the oil filler cap. Because of this had been letting my daughter drive it for +6 months.
    The spark plugs were disturbingly easy to remove. One of them looked like its almost looseness was allowing a little blow back in its thread and onto the tinware around the plug body.. Pic to follow. Bought 4 10mm bolts and large washers from the hardware shop to bolt down and hold the liners in place while the heads off. Works ok.
    Will either buy a spring compressor and clean up the head and valves or give it to a specialist soon.
    Didnt open the lower radiator hose so there was a bit of a flood when the head was lifted. cheers.

    Yes sure is bad, a lot of electrolysis there, also one would think they would've had an "o"ringed sleeve on the oil feed passage, pretty poor.
    Years ago the Qld Uni Auto Engineering mob investigated this very problem and they reckoned it was caused by the wrong mix [read cheap] of aluminium used in casting the head.

    Not saying I agree, just that's what their test results were. Although changing the type of gasket material did help in gaining some longevity. Daywoo 1.8 ltr have the same problem. Enough said.
