head Gasket

Recommended Posts

Whittle Rings are stainless.

 

I don't know of any block sealing head gasket that uses anything but stainless steel or monel/inconel fire ring,

Yep.

 

Is it the separate gasket/fire ring combo that looks like this?

Piston1 (1)

Engine 002 (1)

Tim if you please post part numbers.

Gasket  11044-E4621

Rings 11045-N3120

 

To answer your other question, they have pros and cons

 

Pro:  they are MUCH harder to "blow out", so they are more tolerant to high cylinder pressures and detonation

 

Con: they are MUCH harder to "blow out", so they allow you to run with more detonation.  On a poorly tuned engine this can mean breaking ring lands on expensive pistons instead of just having to replace a $40 head gasket.

THANK YOU SO MUCH I FOUND HEAD GASKETS ON E BAY ANY IDEA ON THE  O RINGS

Not really - Google didn't turn up too much.  Maybe try Courtesy Nissan to see if they can scrounge a set up?
