Included in this listing is a complete engine gasket set for your Rover V8 engine with Thor injection - as used in Discovery 2's and P38 Range Rovers from 1999 onwards. The Thor system can be identified by its unique "bunch of bananas" intake manifold, however if you are unsure then you are always welcome to email email@example.com with a photo of your engine 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. The comprehensive list of gaskets is below.
Included in this kit
Front and Rear Crank Seals
Front cover gasket
Water Pump gasket
Composite intake manifold/valley gasket & end seals.
Upper intake manifold gasket
Pair composite head gaskets
Pair rocker cover gaskets
Exhaust manifold gaskets
Do not use silicon on the sump gasket (or a very, very thin smear if you absolutely must). We have seen silicon contribute to engine damage no end of times as excess sealant gets squeezed into the sump, where it blocks the oil pickup strainer and restricts the oil flow.
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 which sealants we do use and where are available from RPi
A comprehensive selection of bolts and studs are also available from our web shop for your engine rebuilding needs.
