Yes. They look like the correct parts to me. They look the same as the ones I attached pictures of.

hi andy,
please find attached pics of the engine.

on a separate note, the part 8 seems a wee bit expensive or is it me being a tight yorkshire git :)

Part number 8 looks to me like a rubber gasket and is probably reusable. As for the price. I didn't think it's too bad. Less than £20 for all the gaskets seems piece of mind. Part number 8 looks harder to manurfacture than the other 2 hence the price.

I just got shafted for over £9 for a paper thermostat gasket from Vauxhall, so £20 for what you need is not too bad.

update: eurocarparts are pissing about, i had a right go at them as even after 8 days, there is still a delay in getting that UNIQUE gasket. so the job it looks like is getting postponed to the next weekend.

I wouldnt piss about with them. order the gaskets from Vauxhall and they will be there the following day. ECP are a waste of space most of the time. the only time I use them is if I'm stuck in and emergency. I try to steer clear any other time

sorry guys.
The 3 Gasket(teers) are finally here. ECP finally coughed up and sent me a special delivery for the gasket. Optimized-IMG_20160920_180534.jpg
I hope those 3 are the right gasket prior to me performing the job on this coming weekend.

could you please confirm mark and andy. many thanks

thanks very much guys, this is definitely helpful. The middle gasket was what I ordered from Euro Carparts. I will see if I can send it back to them and get a refund.

Just to give you all an update. I have gone ahead and done the cleaning job and so far so good. Thanks very much all for you input, you are doing a great job here.

As promised, I have took pictures and created a small tutorial with pics to help others. It can be found here.

I am more than happy to amend it if I have mentioned something wrong on it or if more info needs adding to it to help other people and likewise, if anyone needs advise on the job, I am here to answer the questions now that I have mastered it :)
