Default 1.8 cvh Head Gasket set and Bolts

Quick question re the above. These seem to be quite cheap on ebay but are they OK quality wise, ie will they last IVA + a few thousand miles till a new engine goes in.

A lot more expensive via Burton Power but then I would be more certain of quality.

Any other recommendations for suppliers?

Personally, I use this seller on ebay for most of my gasket needs

The Gasket Shop

If he hasn't have any listed send him a message, he'll have them

Never had any duff gaskets yet & I have used a fair few sets over the last few years, no premature failures yet.

That includes 2 rover K series head sets & both still going strong several years later.

They also managed to find a set for a friends Ford D series marine engine .... Used 8 - 12 hours a day during the summer months, no problems.

If I go to my local motor factors & order a gasket set, I'll get the same non major brand stuff but at more than double the price

If you want the likes of Payen gaskets, your local engine rebuilder will be able to get them in for you, failing that, it'll be the main stealer.

Hi G,

got mine off the bay, seem to do the trick but then again not done too many miles yet. The miles I have done, lets say, have been quickly covered!!

My intention was always to change the engine eventually so I wasn't going to pay out on the expensive stuff, it's cost me enough already. But if you intend to keep the engine ' you get what you pay for' springs to mind.

Never know it might last a far old while???
