The gasket I removed has no 432830 stamped on and measures 2mm with a vernier. I live in South Africa and can locate only head gasket up to 1.6mm 3 hole. I think the head had been skimmed before. What happens if I fit the 1.6mm. Will the valves hit the pistons? Any help??please.
If someone fitted a 200TDI, it depends on how much was cut off the head.
If you have a 2.5 TD non TDI no chance.
