After an engine failure at my Reliant Scimitar GTE I was very happy to get a brand new Essex 3.0 from South Africa. Now we want to replace the intake spider so that we can mount the Weber DGAS carburettor. We noticed that there is no cork seal gasket for the valve covers, like in the English Essex engine, but a thicker profile seal made of rubber. Unfortunately I can’t get it here. Do you have any idea where I can order this rubber valve cover gasket in South Africa?
Thank you very much for a tip!
