Needed some valve stem seals and I thought the price was ridiculous for some small rubber seal: £2 from the stealers. I remember paying like £0.30 per seal for my Mi16 engine so I searched the web and I came across some website which have the Elring 403.730 at £0.37

Direct link to product:
Elring 403.730

These stem seals are used in alot of engine from different brands
Elring is a german brand and they were OEM suppliers for Saab. Just in case someone is questioning the quality Razz

Thought this info might be usefull to someone who wants to rebuild the head Smile

I've just done this very job, and I can tell you I never paid £2 a seal, 77p iirc but I'll check my invoice to be sure!

Be careful of aftermarket seals. I rebuilt my old 1.8 with good quality aftermarket ones. It was p**sing oil past. In the end, i had to rebuild it with pug ones.

I got some from a vw 20v engine that are the same, if you buy a set you have a few spare in case you damage one on fitting Wink
