Hey everyone hopefully just a quick query.


I'm about to replace my head gasket, and was just wondering if the the ways to denote the thickness of the gasket i.e. some have teeth and some have holes. If they are the same.


As in my head gasket has 4 teeth, would that be the same as a head gasket with 4 holes? Also was thinking of taking a photo of each stage if anyone was unsure how to do one, would anyone like this or should I just get on with it?


Thanks in advance

Sorry, can't help with identification, but would love you to take pics and post the steps when doing your head.

I heard somewhere that the jag gasket is about £6 and fits this motor like a glove?
