so surely it makes sense to do it then? Its a £50 part & you dont want the hg going again.
this is the blurb that comes from the place supplying mine:
ROVER SERVICE BULLETIN STATES: THAT THIS PART SHOULD BE FITTED IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE MLS HEAD GASKET
IF FITTED TO PRE-2002 MODELS
IMPROVED DESIGN & MATERIAL - MAINTAINS CORRECT CLAMPING LOAD - UNLIKE EARLY PART
I'v read the MLS is much more prone to leak than the elastomer gasket without the new oil rail.
