Re: Which head gasket to use

If you want to avoid HG failure again fit the PRT thermostat unfortunately it is a bit of a fiddly job especially if you have the R65 box as starter is in the way and the difference in the pipe diameter from the PRT to the lower radiator pipe

Re: Which head gasket to use

Shim liners and use the latest Victor Reinz 61-34835-20 with built in head saver or the SIAC gasket from Xpart/discount MG Rover spares.

How much were your ones?
Unfortunately you have to buy everything separate. I think the mounts were about £150 the bearings for the mounts where about £100 then the over bits like bolts, fitting etc where about another £50ish was long time ago can't remember :D

We could certainly do with getting more torque at the bottom of the rev range on my daughter's 1.4 Rover 25 -with the very light flywheel, the clutch is quite tricky for a learner.
If your is the 80bhp you could put the ZR throttle body on to make it 105bhp won't help much with bottom end tho.
