Hello,
Im having trouble finding a full gasket set for my g13b. the best ive found so far is on American ebay and im not 100% sure about the quality. does anyone know the best place to get one.

Also ive seen a few head gaskets advertised for different bores. my cylinders have been bored to 50thou so do I need a head gasket to suit?

Thanks for the help guys
joe

In my personal experience. I have found the cheap ones worked the best. I use enginetech gaskets. Never had one problem with them.

Do not use eristic brand or DNJ brands. Both have been unreliable in my experience. Name brand gaskets are not terribly expensive and are worth the extra $$$'s. Fel pro from rockauto.com is a cost effective option. You need to order a head set and what's called a conversion set that has the bottom half engine gaskets. I have used one or two engine tech sets over the years and think they did ok. When I speak of dnj&eritistic, I had multiple failures on each brand, when properly and professionally installed, on different engines(1.3 Suzuki, 1.5&1.6L, 3.5L Hondas). This leads me to believe they are pretty risky to use. To many failures to call it bad luck.
