Land Rover Head Gasket Set Overview
Watch Jim explain what is included in the Head Gasket Set that fits most Land Rovers and Range Rovers.
Head Gasket Set What Is Included in the Head Gasket Set (STC4082BK)Hi. It's Jim at Atlantic British. I take care of the technical support here. We're going to take a look at our head gasket replacement kit you can buy here. There's been some confusion. There's more stuff in this kit than you actually need for a Land Rover. It's because the Land Rover V8 is installed in other cars in the UK. Could be in a Rover car. First thing you are going to see is, we have the head gasket in here. This is pretty obvious it's the head gasket. That's why youre going in there. It actually has little instructions in here on how to install it. The next two gaskets are your valve cover gaskets. In the kit you are going to find metal gaskets for the exhaust manifold to the head. Also included in the kit, if your car has a normal thermostat, there's a thermostat gasket in here. If you have a Disco 2 or later model Range Rover you probably won't be using this. Also there's what they call the valley cover gasket. This is the intake manifold gasket. Here's the tin gasket and the two rubber end seals. We move over here to the other side - you may recognize my old Rover - also in the kit, these blue seals, they look just like this, are the valve seals for your intake and exhaust valves. There should be 16 of these in here. Also in the kit, there should be 16 of these rubber O rings. This is for the upper and lower part of the fuel injectors, if you take them out. Now for the confusing part. In this bag, there's like these seals. I'm not quite sure what these fit. It could be a truck or car with a carburetor. Also, this 1 gasket I can tell you, if you got an older Rover is for the throttle pot on the throttle opening. Other gaskets they could be for throttle heaters on some other cars. Like I said, they put these in here. They just don't our versions. As you can see, in the bag there's quite a few. So, my recommendation when you're using this kit: get your car apart; take the seal out you're looking; and see if you can match it up in the kit. If you don't find it in the kit, I'm sure we stock it. So, that's our head gasket kit. This is the one where you have to replace the head bolts too because this is what they call a compression style gasket. You can get your gasket here at RoveParts.com or call us at 1-800-533-2210. Talk to our sales staff. They can give you the gaskets you need to complete the job or just sell you this head gasket set.
