Yes I have used them. My rocker cover no longer leaks, a very worthwhile modification in my opinion.

When it comes to leaky rocker box gaskets, I suggest you read the thread starting with John's (chaterlea25) post about making an improved head steady.

Here it is: https://www.a7a10.net/forum/index.php?topic=2912.msg19633#msg19633

I supply solid rocker box gaskets and I have sold quite a few sets, never had a complaint yet, they are very good and unless you have a real nasty grove in the mating surfaces you will no longer have any leak from there, complete set is £16 plus p+p.

Kind regards TTJohn

Hi,


I'm also interesting in those gaskets and I'm living in Sweden. How can I order a set?


Best regards
