BX 19 RD MK II 1989 manifold gaskets?

Post by Dyane425 » Mon May 18, 2015 1:45 pm

Looking at the back of the 19 Diesel (non turbo) engine, there are 4 metal pipes that are attached to 4 plastic pipes, with a small gap in between. Oil is weeping from here. I've looked on an on line manual, and checked GSF, AEP Direct and cannot find out what these parts are called. Are there gaskets fitted in the gaps? If so, what gaskets are they, and where can they be purchased?

That's the air intake, I would check the rocker cover Gasket, looking at your other posts it appears the headgasket may have failed so it will all need to come off anyway.
