Have you tried the new Drafts feature yet? I just lost a long message today and learned my lesson. It is a good idea to save a draft of any long post you are writing. You can then just keep writing and keep saving a draft, knowing you have a backup if there is a glitch. The draft is automatically deleted when you post the message.

i have just bought a set of gaskets for what appears to be a mk3 to mk5  which i am going to get reproduced as it has a few gaskets ldmcc dont have but what has raised my eyebrows is there are 2 round copper gaskets that appear to be head gaskets as well as the normal copper head gaskets
if this is the case then may explain the head gaskets blowing out on various mk models although i have only worked on a few mark models i have never seen these gaskets before

....which i am going to get reproduced ....

Hi Trevorp - do you intend to reproduce those gaskets with a view to selling them? If so,I would be interested in buying a set.

Regards, Mark4s


If you are making head gaskets for the Marks then please ensure they are thick enough to allow for the spigot depth.  I bought a set of gaskets from LDMCC and one head gasket blew after about 3 miles.  Fortunately Mr Douglas in his wisdom has given us two cylinders we could  (most) always get home.
