Oil pump gasket

PostPost by: 2cams70 » Sat Jun 19, 2021 3:30 am

Has anyone tried using a Ford Fiesta oil pump gasket? Appears to me to be the best type you can get. Burton's sell one which looks to be the same as the Ford OEM item for the Fiesta. It seems to be a steel laminate construction. I bought one to check it out. I see no reason why it can't be used in Lotus Twin Cam / Ford RWD Kent applications however I'm interested to know if anyone previously has used one. As far as I'm aware the Fiesta pump is pretty similar to the Ford RWD Kent one apart from different oil filter and PRV location. Pictures below show the Kent pump, original Ford OEM gasket for the LTC and Burton's supplied Ford Fiesta gasket.
