    In search of help locating a head gasket for my 85 2.0 diesel. Everywhere I look says to come to this group. I’m not too tech savvy so I apologize if this is the wrong place to post. Please help

    If there is any way to do it, I would change your post title to "2.0 diesel head gasket needed" or similar. A lot of people will skip a thread that has a generic "Help wanted" title, whereas diesel guys will notice a title such as I suggested.

    Appreciate it. My first car was an 84 wagon with the diesel, I killed it tinkering with it when I was a kid and have been after one since. Found this tempo with the same power plant so I plan to find a gas wagon and motor swap it. Iv hear I can find them overseas but want to know if anyone here has had any luck finding them. If not I’m going to machine my block for a fire ring and have a copper gasket made.

    I recall reading the probe or some other motor had the same head gasket

    I screwed something up there, I found a post on it here, one guy posted a photo of his original gasket, then what is listed for it, another guy said he ordered it and the thread ended. The available gasket for the probe is nothing like the 2.0rf and wouldn’t seal- unless someone here has had luck but haven’t seen anything yet
