AF070 out of stock – What should I use?
The Payen AF070 Gasket is usually our go to gasket for small bore applications. Particularly those with a little extra compression. At present there is a shortage of this gasket with very limited UK stock in circulation and no new stock at the manufacturers.
We thought it best to give our feedback on the best replacement gasket for your standard reconditioned engines.
With stock known to be getting lower in recent months of Genuine Payen AF070 gaskets whilst we wait for their next production run we have been trialling the rest so that our builds and services are not disrupted. We have found the BGA CH5311 head gasket to be a great quality replacement. With a compressed thickness of 1.0mm it is a great replacement.
