Top-End Gasket Set, Elring - E32 750iL, E31 850i/CSi
Extensive gasket and seal package for M70 work above the engine block. OEM equivalent to BMW part #11129059239
Head gasket failure is a not uncommon M70 issue and it's something to take seriously. This head gasket set for E32 750iL, E31 850i, and E31 850CSi has all of the gaskets and seals associated with nearly any work done above the engine block, including head gasket replacement, intake manifold removal, VANOS and camshaft work, and more. It's good planning to have a top-end and bottom-end gasket on hand in your garage because you never know when you need a gasket in a pinch. Gasket sets are like having your very own BMW parts department at your finger tips!
The head gasket is sold separately (see below). Head gaskets are available in more than one thickness to account for a shaved or milled cylinder head. Use a stock thickness if you are not shaving the head.
Instead of buying just the head gasket you can get all of the other gaskets and seals needed to complete the job. This M70 top end gasket set includes:

Symptoms of head gasket failure include: white residue (tapioca) in the valve cover, under the oil filler cap, and in drained oil, low coolant (not caused by failure in cooling system), low oil, oil leak onto exhaust manifold, and loss of power from loss of compression. Cooling system trouble on the M70 must be addressed quickly as the aluminum head is easily damaged if overheating occurs.
