Hi all,

Can anyone help please??

I'm doing the Club Triumph RBRR this weekend, and the Toledo has a blown head gasket. It's all in pieces, ready to go together, but I don't have a suitable head gasket - the one the local motor factor supplied me with is a thin one suitable for a flat block, and being a generic motor factor, the difference between flat and recessed blocks might as well be in Swahili to them...

So if I can get a new gasket early tomorrow we have a fighting chance of putting it together in time to start the event...

I'm based in Hungerford in Berkshire; if no luck otherwise, I'll try fighting my way to Moss in Bristol...

Many thanks all
