    Head gasket fitting on AFN 1.9TDi

    I'm going to be fitting a new headgasket soon after i've cleaned up the head and replaced stem seals, relaped valves and cleaned carbon etc.

    Just wondering if i should use any sealing compound between head gasket and head/block?

    If so whats reccommended?

    Not done a head on a diesel before, and knowing VAG there's gotta be something different.

    Any help much appreceated

    Thanks Jack

    No compound should be applied to either the gasket, cylinder block or head.

    Just fit it as is, paying heed to recommended torque sequence and settings.
