Hillman Imp 998cc special gaskets

Rare as those things called Hens Teeth,a special 998cc copper head gasket and a stainless camshaft carrier shim arrived from the suppliers in the UK today,dont even ask the price but we needed the genuine artical and quickly.

Solid copper sheet thats 1.5mm thick,laser cut to suit the block and head.

Brought in as a back up only,if we do not use it,I think it will get framed and hung on the wall behind glass, its probably the only one in Africa?

Look closely,there is a stainless steel shim on top of the camshaft carrier,at 0.06mm thick it gives us room to adjust the valves and over head camshaft hight.
