This gasket is made from three thin steel shims which are riveted together. It's a custom-made Cometic gasket to fit when the 1275 engine bores have been bored between +0.020-inch to +0.060-inch. Therefore it will suit engines from 1275-1330cc.
The dry-deck option has blank water gallery holes, saving a lot of machining time and cost on blanking the original water galleries in the block. Choose the appropriate gasket from the list above.
Please note - the gasket is 0.030-inch thick.
A small modification is required - see the Additional Information tag for fitment details.
Multi-Layer Steel (MLS) head gaskets contain load-controlled embossments, which conform load distribution across sealing the area. This creates an exceptional seal by requiring less clamp load resulting in less bore distortion.
The stainless steel outer layers are coated with FKM (Viton), a high temperature/chemical resistant polymer. A topcoat of PTFE (Teflon) aids in resistance to fret and increased cold sealing.
A small modification to the engine block will be required to allow gasket clearance. Take a small file to the edge of engine number tag location to relieve just enough material for the gasket to sit flush.
