XPart supplies ‘ultimate fix’ for MG Rover K-series engine
MG Rover parts specialist XPart now offers the best known aftermarket solution for head gasket repairs on K-series engines
By: Katharine Earley
“After a period of thorough testing we are convinced that the latest MLS Gasket Kit offers technicians the best known fix for head gasket replacement,”
In designing the new kit, XPart and SAIC have used a combination of the revised lower oil rail designed by MG Rover engineers, higher tensile 10.9 grade long stretch bolts and a new single piece multi-layer steel gasket engineered by SAIC for its new N-series engine. The gasket should not be fitted in isolation and it is the kit together with revised torque settings that provides the best known repair. The XPart parts warranty only applies when the full kit has been used.
“The Rover 25 we used to trial the latest MLS gasket has now covered many miles as a heavy use courtesy car and I have complete confidence that in line with all of our other MLS gasket equipped cars, it will continue to give reliable service for the remainder of its life”, explains Patrick Warner, Managing Director, Sterling Automotive. “We have been using MLS head gaskets for over two years with a 100 percent success rate. The latest kit from XPart helps make this even more affordable for customers. We would recommend fitting the MLS gasket set which comes with a strengthened lower oil rail and new head bolts, as well as a water pump.”
XPart will continue to offer the original K-series components as part of its MG Rover original parts range and envisages this kit as being particularly popular among enthusiast and car restorers.
