Included in this listing is a complete engine gasket set for your Rover V8 engine with GEMS injection as used in Range Rover P38's pre 1999, Defender 90 50th Anniversary and many Morgan and TVR models. The GEMS injection system is identifiable by its use of a single multi-v serpentine belt around the ancillaries, but using coil packs for the ignition system. If you are unsure, you are welcome to email a photo of your engine to firstname.lastname@example.org for identification. When we say full engine gasket set, we mean it, the listing here is for a kit containing every gasket and seal in your V8 engine to keep the oil, water and air where they should be.
Included in this kit
Oil Pickup tube gasket
Front and Rear Crank Seals
Front cover gasket
Water Pump gasket
Thermostat housing gasket
Intake manifold/valley gasket & end seals
Pair composite head gaskets
Pair rocker cover gaskets
Be careful with the silicon! Although the GEMS engine came without a sump gasket from the factory and so require the use of silicon sealant, be careful. Excess sealant will be squeezed into the sump, where it can be picked up in the oil flow and block the strainer.
The head gaskets we supply are composite, as we have found these give the best long term reliability, and being thicker than tin gaskets allows more tolerance for minor imperfections in the sealing surfaces
Details of what sealants to use and where are available from us to assist with fitting. We also have full workshop facilities available to undertake any Rover V8 related task if you require fitting on any of our products.
