True it hasn't had the test of time in the real world, but I'm pretty sure it's been put through the mill in the tests.I am sick of hearing that this Land Rover gasket is the fix. It's not been used long enough to tell. I should laugh if this gasket does not work and it is just as bad as the orginal one. I am not against it but I just dont think it's the cure for everything.
I've had the LR gasket for 5000 miles now.... no trouble so far. And to be honest, it's had a right bloody thrashing.............True it hasn't had the test of time in the real world, but I'm pretty sure it's been put through the mill in the tests.
Of course there is always a chance it could fail, how I just don't know at the moment, because I can't see what would actually fail and if it did it wouldn't be the spectacular failure of the silicon job.
Damn, you've just come up with a negative for the LR gasket....gasket fine, but engine trashed!I agree with ashy - I cant really see what can actually fail on the LR gasket. In my oppinion - if your engine fitted with a LR gasket where to run out of coolant and/or overheat then I actually think that a part of the engine would fail before the head gasket would fail, for example it would get so hot that the liners would sink...but the head gasket would remain intact.
Yeah lol. Engine would have to get hot though to do that damage wouldn't it? I mean, you would probably know about it!Damn, you've just come up with a negative for the LR gasket....gasket fine, but engine trashed!
At least the poxy silicon gasket gave you a warning before the engine melted.:err:
