Which rocker gasket

Postby JeffMerlot » Wed Jul 10, 2019 11:40 am

I had the rocker gasket on my Mk1 1.6 done about three years ago but it has been leaking agaiun for at least the last 12 months. I know it is a common problem and I will have to get it done again, but I wondered if anyone has any advice on which gaskets to use -- genuine or aftermarket and which are considered the best. Autolink have both but I am not sure which to go for. If the genuine ones are better I would rether pay the premium than have it fail again so soon.
