Full Engine Gasket Set - GEMS

Product information

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 info@v8engines.com 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
  • Crucifix seals
  • Front cover gasket
  • Water Pump gasket
  • Thermostat housing gasket
  • Intake manifold/valley gasket & end seals
  • Pair composite head gaskets
  • Pair rocker cover gaskets

Helpful information

  • 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.
  • Please note that none of the standard head bolts should be reused. ARP studs can be reused any number of times, assuming the thread is not damaged. New stud kits and bolts are available from our shop here
  • 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.
