  1. Valve cover gaskets

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    My gaskets are shot and I have new ones in the box with new bolts from A-B. I watched a video on replacing these and I'm not up for trying this myself. Any idea on how long this job would normally take a shop to do? I have secondary air....:x

  7. Heads - gaskets, cam selection

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Hi guys, About 20,000km ago I purchased a 96 4.6 on a bit of a whim. In that time I've grown very fond of the old bus and its now time to give him a little love. It has always had what I presumed to be a lifter noise. A few weeks back it developed a rough idle, which I traced to the left bank...

    I just replaced my camshaft cover gaskets for the 2nd time (1st time at 80k miles, this time at 170k miles), this time with Fel Pro gaskets from Rock Auto.
