Headgasket set should be in town on wednesday. Yesterday I took the head off. Looks like the gasket was leaking from cylinder #1, also the #1 piston was very clean on top, so it indicates also that some water has been leaking to cylinder. Weird that there was not any white smoke and the engine still sound very good.
Hopefully compi will be running again by the end of the week...

Dreaming on... no gasket set still, maybe tomorrow, it arrived to Finland yesterday...

Damn, cannot put it together then this week, going to Crete on Sunday for a week. Maybe after that...if the gaskets arrive.

i cant understand why is so difficult to get a gasket set, it is the same as some other vw engines, every shop should have them on stock...

the only issue with the ace engine is the valve cover gasket, because there are 2 types. all the rest is the same as the vw abf or 9a engine...
