Guess not, judging from the quality of casting and gasket fitting.
What is this then?
looks like a botch job to me. like some jerk with a Black&Decker tried to 'improve' it.
According to my service history the head had never been out.
It was a director's company car, so such hanky-panky is unlikely.
Showed it to a Vaux mechanic friend of mine and he said it's definately DIY
Has anybody else seen anything similar on a stock LET?
