Hi Dalton

www.davebean.com or Ray at www.rdent.com should be able to help. Headgaskets also apear on ebay. Both are Lotius supliers and you will more than likely pay some premium but they will probably have them. Dave Bean is in San Andreas, Ca. and R.D. Enterprises is in Quakertown, Pa.

Hi Dalton
The head gasket may be the same but the intake and exhaust won't be and I would think that once removed they ought to be replaced. I guess you may be able to slide the head gasket under with out removing them but I would like to inspect the head while its unbolted. I would be looking for a head set. There was one on ebay stores for $29 yesterday for the 105e and 1200cc engine. I don't know if the port size for the intake and exhaust is the same or not.

if you can't find one that is specificly for the 1500 I would try this over the 1600 as most of the other gaskets would be right.
