Gasket Set

I see many gasket sets on ebay. Usually they say they are 50 pice sets or something like that. Most of the time it is fairly obvious what gaskets come with the kits but I was wondering if they usually come with the water pipe o rings or the water pump oil seal? It seems the seller only says "what you see is what you get."



Do any of you use these gasket kits or do you buy everything individually?



I am trying to make sure this engine I have is in decent condition so I want to check out the timing chain and take a look at the stator. While I am in their I want to replace the water pump oil sea as well as the mechanical seal. I know the kits do not include the mechanical seal but no one can answer about the oil seal.



Bah I just want warm weather again.

Most sets will come with the majority of the O-rings as well. You just have to double check. And most of us stay away from using the aftermarket head gaskets. The usually don't last long. Go with OEM Hondas for those. The part # is 12251-415-306



They will have the oil seals too. Go with the Honda ones again for these. Sorry I don't have all those #'s in front of me right now. But if you check this link HERE, you'll be able to find all the part #'s for each one that you need.
