Has anyone found a source of the specified thicker 0.050" head gaskets as mentioned in the D14 manual, i.e: "Note that on early D14 models two cylinder head gaskets of 0·025" thickness were fitted. Later these were replaced by a single gasket of 0·050" thickness. Always check the gasket thickness when fitting, as two must be fitted if of the thinner type."

On my 1968 D14 I use a single gasket and not had problem with that.

I use a single standard one without problems. My engine is hybrid D7/D14. I use a D14 bottom end and head.
