TD5: head gaskets


Recommended Posts

Do you get different head gasket thicknesses for the TD5? I am told by my mechanic that I should get a head gasket "+2 notches" - meaning thicker by 2 notches, whatever that means.

Can anyone shed any light on this matter please?

Yes you do. IIRC there are 3 different ones but I'd need to double check that in the parts book.

Basically you identify the one fitted to the engine as original build and fit one the same if you ever change it. The only time it would need a different one is if you had the head skimmed or something like that.
