elring 300tdi headgasket.


Recommended Posts

hi ,new to this forum but info is great,have recently bought 300tdi disco on 94 m plate,chuffing noise from back of engine so pulled head off,true enough,black mark on head and soundproofing burnt on bulkhead,had head skimmed and unsure of gasket choice,3 hole genuine land rover fitted,engineer supplied a payen for 200/300 tdi 3 hole.when i queried with a lr main dealer if 200 and 300 gaskets were different they said yes,reason for asking is because i bought a head set for a 200tdi which i used to own but never fitted.part no err5263 3 hole elring,is this suitable for 300tdi? or is any of them a better quality because i have read that elring are better than genuine?.please can any one shine some light on this matter

Elring or Payen are both good quality, it's possible that both make gaskets for LR as LR don't make them.

use the gasket which is the same thickness as the existing gasket,

110 1987 on parts book shows the 200 7 300 head gaskets with different part numbers for the different thickness's of gasket.

it's not unknown for LR to use the same item but give it a updated part number for different models of vehicles/components.
