Auxiliary Housing Gasket

Recommended Posts



A quick query, please. I've noticed that the aux housing gasket doesn't seem to have been cut out properly as it appears to be restricitng oil flow directly from the pick-up pipe/olive/union. 


This doesn't seem to be a batch issue as orignal (NLA) Lotus gaskets have the same pattern.


As such, I was wondering if I could cut out the offending areas, thereby increasing oil flow, or if this is a deliberate factor, in order to prevent oil back flow (I'm guessing here!).


I've tried, but failed to upload some photo's to help demonstrate what I'm talking about, but I hope this would make sense without them.


Many thanks for your assistance.
