Re: 250 engine water pressure test cylinder heads

Hi Tom,

Two questions in regard to the gaskets from Murray Glegg:
1.) what torque do you use for the head bolts with this gasket?
2.) do you use any additional spray sealing like VHT?

Thanks a lot

Re: 250 engine water pressure test cylinder heads

Hi Tom, Thanks for the helpful answer. Does the proposed setup for the test as described by me make sense? I must confess that Elring did contact you because of me. I made them aware of the trouble with their gaskets and recommend to speak to Piet Roloefs and you to get info on failures. What I like...

The 330 handbook says to test with 125 psi, thats about 8.5 bar. This is very high compared to the normal running conditions! What pressure do yo...

Carpet in boot of 250 Gte

Hi All,

any photos on how the original carpet looks like for a 250Gte S2/3 in the boot below the aluminum panel covering the spare wheel would help a lot. Especially around the two longitudinal frame tubes, inside the rear fender panels, etc.

Thanks a lot.
