Hi,

 

 

Is there a preferred manufacturer for gasket kits for the TU? I don't think I'll get a hold of a genuine Peugeot one and was wondering if there were certain third parties to either look for or to avoid.

 

On ebay most seem to be FAI or BGA..

 

Cheers

Matt.

look for payen stuff, my local engine machinists can get it same day usually, through FPS which are nationwide.

 

have you bothered to get part numbers and ask your local dealer though?

 

fai and bga are just standard motofcactor fare, not had any particular bad experiences with them but for a small extra outlay if any at all I would go for someone like Payen who are an o,e manufacturer and made a lot of the original peugeot bits, which do tend to last well.

Thanks Welshpug, not as yet no hence asking the question whether or not it makes a bit of difference. Looks like they sell Payen online too for ~£52 for the kit, will probably go with that!

 

Thanks
