1300 FWD diff-sump gasket


Recommended Posts

Please, can anyone tell me if all 1300 sump gaskets are the same? Or adaptable to fit.
I was looking at the Payen EG090 gasket set, but is doesn't hold a sump gasket.
So, I was wondering if any 1300 sump gasket would fit between the 1300 FWD engine block and the FWD diff-sump.
Thank you.

Hello Marinaman, I would say you can use any Spitfire / Herald sump gasket. 

Photo below shows a normal Spitfire / Herald sump gasket on the 1300FWD sump. Look at the top right corner - it's not a perfect fit but covers all the way round.

Some people will tell you the proper FWD gasket thickness is 0.020" and is critically important and you shouldn't use anything else. I say it's not that critical and have covered many miles using the 'wrong' gasket. It does drop a little oil but that seems to be from the diff / gearbox rather than engine. I'm almost certain the gasket thickness had nothing to do with two broken clutch plates as well.
