Bought a 318iS the other week,needed head gasket.
Upon removal of the cylinder head it turns out it was the profile gasket
that failed.
But,the lower timing case looks like it has corroded away and there's not much for the gasket to sit on.
Anybody got one spare for an early M42? or have a picture of one so i can see what theyre ment to look like and see if this one is salvageable?

Thanks Ronnie,already looked at that one,shows the gasket thats failed but not of the case.
If i can ever get the crank bolt undone i'll get the cases media blasted and see from there,or just get a good second hand one.
