If you try to use the wrong gasket it is obviously incorrect.
Thanks Paul, but that throws up another question for me.
My bike has a Mk1 bottom end with a Mk2 top end grafted on by the previous owner. It also came to me with a Morgo oil pump fitted.
When I began chasing oil leakage, I bought a new timing cover gasket from Drags and fitted it, oblivious of the existence of two different gaskets and simply ordering from their webshop which shows one part number for Mk1 and Mk2 engines.
I'm wondering now how the gasket I bought compares with either of the two types which Morgo supply with the Mk1 oil pump.
Also, could you please point me in the direction of information about the two different types of pressure release valves on Mk1's?
