Zetec Head Gasket.

hi guys,

Looking at getting a gasket kit to re-build my silver top.
But I saw the comment on the head gasket part "Head Gasket Fibre Faced With A Steel Core - Not For Engines Manufactured After May 1998 With Multi Layered Steel Head Gaskets"

Below is the link to the part.

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/HEAD-GASKET-SET-BOLTS-FITS-FORD-MONDEO-CONTOUR-2-0-16V-ZETEC-1992-98-VRS/121209644483?hash=item1c38a865c3:g:GqEAAMXQUmFSepr H

My block is away at the moment so no engine number. Is there a way to identify from the cylinder head or the old head gasket which type I have?

Basically Silvertop or Blacktop. Blacktops used the multilayer shims. Either way I would go for a brandname or a gen ford gasket.

Ive never had a problem with Victor Reinz.

If yours is a silvertop then yes, Iíve used the firm as well and been happy.
