I'm not having any luck finding an engine gasket set for my 1397cc Virage in Australia -- you know, head gasket, sump, timing cover, water pump etc. Must I source them overseas? Any suggestions welcome.
I've got some half moons you can have. Suggest you use some blue goo for the sump. You can form a timing cover gasket without drama. That just leaves the head and the manifold gaskets. The manifold gasket is pretty straight forward. I just made up an exhaust flange gasket wot works a treat.
Thanks for the advice, but what are half moons? I'm not averse to forming my own gaskets, but for the sump, I'm wary of re-using the neoprene front/rear seals as they become flattened in use and I hate oil leaks. Looks like o/s for the head gasket though. Oh well...
Peter, it looked to me as if the Euro 1.4l head gaskets are not the same as our 1.4 ones -- at least going by some of the pics. I've gone with the US 1397 head and sump gaskets, as they appear to be identical to the Virage, even though the Alliance has different water pump and timing cover gaskets. Thanks for your help.
