Recommended Posts

Hi all,

As above on the cam covers, any idea if these are hi temp viton or normal nitrile (NBR) is ok? 

Many thanks, Steve.

Thanks Dan. It's one of those ones where 10 standard m20 dowty washers for 'numerous engineering applications' is £4 on ebay or £20+ from SJ which may be exactly the same. I know £20 isn't exactly big money but costs mount as we all know and I thought someone might have gone the eBay route without any problems. If I don't hear, I'll probably go the safe option as you suggest from SJ and hope the price reflects a higher spec.

Yep, Ebay versions for me..... Not had any issues.   However, as insurance I always fit them using a trace of Loctite 518 too
