Gaskets need to spread load evenly, retain torque load, and fill practically-microscopic gaps in order to do their job properly. Unfortunately, you often can’t find gaskets for Fiat/Alfa/Lancia applications from aftermarket gasket manufacturers. That’s why all our gaskets are OEM-style and manufactured in Italy, unless otherwise noted; we also stock German-made Reinz head gaskets and valve cover gaskets for Alfa Romeo 1750 and 2000 engines. Gasket sets include everything needed for a complete overhaul, including head gaskets, manifold gaskets (intake and exhaust), valve cover gaskets, and more.
You’ll also need crankshaft oil seals for front and rear…we’ve got them, for a wide range of applications.
NOTE: There are special tools that are designed for installing oil seals, but for years mechanics have been using a length of pipe, PVC plumbing, a socket or even a block of wood to drive them in. Just make sure it’s an exact fit around the edge of the seal, where it’s least likely to bend or deform, and remember that a little bit of medium-weight grease along the edge can help ease it in. Just be sure it goes in perfectly straight!
