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.

I bought a "full" gasket set from ebay two years ago. It included all the o-rings but did not include the camshaft rear oil seal or the water pump gasket. A number of members have had trouble with non-Honda head gaskets by I lucked out -- mine are still sealing. I paid around $70 for that "complete" set.
