Had a PM from a member, which I can't answer at present so if anyone can help Steve out it would be appreciated:

Engine: 20H E23 100585
Car 91 Plus 4/M16i (Dec build M8484 chassis).

The E23 doesnt seem to be consistent with any part manual. Should I be looking for the Rover 820i 90-91 head gasket and engine rebuilt gasket kit (One for easy/one for total disaster).

Any advice on a part number is appreciated. I know I don't want to use the T16 gaskets but it looks like there is also a difference before 1990.
Hope all are doing well there.

We are going to try to come back over again in 2023. I'm trying to convince my wife that a prewar-flat rad is a totally different car that I need to purchase to drive over there again.

Best wishes

Steve Alves

I have pointed them in that direction John. Didn't know they had a USA helpline number until I looked just now. thumbs

Hello Graham,M16 head gasket is GUG 702523HG and also LVB 10045 EVA. If using the later multi steel gaskets you must remove the oil restrictor in the block. I did not know this when using the new type gasket but as I use 5/40 oil I found no problems after 20,000 miles. But!
To remove the restrictor use a self tapper into the supply hole from the block and pull out the tin restrictor. Advice to your Morgan friend if fitting the normal gasket use a little gasket sealant around the oil supply hole for the camshafts as this is a oil leak problem on all these engines. However our Morgan has covered over 177,000 miles so the basic engine design is sound.
