Leaky head gasket

Thank you okc329, I hope I have the special gasket.

Does anybody know if the special gasket is made by 'elring' and comes with a red bead of sealent applied to bothe sides?

I was told that HYLOMAR HPF made by Permatex was used on head gaskets on Rolls Royce engines. I looked up this sealent in a NAPA auto parts store product book and it said that this sealent was developed for RR, BMW, Audi, Jaguar and other luxury European auto manufacturers. Does anybody know if this is the correct special sealent?

The bolts shouldn't have to be replaced unless they have stretched beyond the tolerance limit.

Do you know if they had to mill your head?

Thanks again,

Hilton Smith
