Re: head gasket done in car.
No doubt it would fit ,give me some cutting gear and a welder and i will put you in a jag engine.The problem is the paperwork involved ,and finding a technical engineer to draw up a plan with all technical stuff like brake co-efficients and power train values then getting passed through the vehicle inspection test.Best engine is a honda for this car,just buy one with a honda engine.GReat cars the rovers especially the P5

Dont know as never done one ,but the older renaults and peugeots had taps or a allen headed bolt in the thermostat housing ,if no air bleeds fitted to engine then it shouldnt need it -?? could be the head gaskets are pressurising the system again as in common with a lot of the questions on here i would really need a look myself
Pull the head and have it reconditioned at an engineering shop. Clean the block face . fit new genuine head gasket ( after market do not always have the correct water holes) Fit and re-tension head bolts. Only sure fix.
I am having head gaskets replaced as we speak.. extra pressure in overflow tank? water bubbling? your done..New Gaskets.. you may have an air lock? pray.. radiator blocked? doubtful.. do not let engine overheat....
When a h/gasket it done it is usually required to come back in after 1000k,s to be retensioned.A modified gasket is mainly fitted IF the head was shaved or reconditioned.Did they say to bring it back in for the head to be retensioned after the initial fitting?If not,it is their fault.It is the same as a new car.It requires the head gasket to be retensioned after 1000k,s.All cars are the same.Hope this helps you
Sounds as though you have water in the oil. The white smoke is the steam. Check your oil by taking the dip stick out and if it looks like mayonnaise then your head gasket will need replacing. Once the head is off the engine block, there is no way safely to say how much work will be needed on the cylinder head. If the head gasket has blown then you will need to fit a new timing belt also.
