Well what is the secret then !
I changed the gasket soon after I bought the car so 3 plus years ago, recently it developed a leak mid way
along facing the carbs, tried tightening the screws, but it was beyond that. Last weekend I carefully
cleaned off the remains of the old, on cover and head, using loctite gasket dressing I stuck it to the cover,
clothes pegged it on for 1hr before fitting to car. Then using dressing again fitted to car, made point of
not tightening screws too much, but after 3 days it leaks, same place w........
Plus the gasket was from a main supplier and installer, but it seems too long in real terms, main issue going around the
bends to the wider section, is this normal.
Any advice welcome.
