OK Guys I need a new gasket for this. I believe it's a 1974 Humber Secptre. Can anyone recommend where to find one and get it sent to Florida?

Well the gasket is on order and the sealant looks like it is working. Took a drive today and no reduction in the radiator water. Turn signals quit working again today. lol, the old girl is driving me nuts lately.

That's it. Thanks Graham.

Ah!  The alloy head one uses a different gasket.   Try this one:

Thanks Graham but that one doesn't look right. If you look closely at the picture the bolts on one side are closer together than the other side.

Yes Graham, Like I said I have a lot of water in the oil. Now I think that the sealant worked. I am going to change the oil today and see how the old girl is doing. lol, The bottle of sealant cost $45. Not cheap but less than the cost of replacing the head gasket.

Wait a minute -  steam out of the rocker cover gasket?????   I would pop the head off and have a good look.  Replace the gasket, but as it is an alloy casting ( the head ) get it skimmed flat

bit late now if hes allready put it in...dugh. it will be fine jim. if its only for a rocker cover jim you could use liquid gasket....but need to get the faces really clean and oil free first

Jim sorry but I would not use that stuff instead of a head gasket , depending on the amount of water getting into the oil you could end up needing a new engine , WATER AND OIL DO NOT MIX
