Looking at doing our top end and hunting around for a head gasket. Can anyone suggest a supplier? Any experience with Alibaba specials?

There is nothing, absolutely nothing, half so much worth doing, as simply messing about in boats

Anything I have seen come from Allibaba has been cheap nasty rubbish. I would go genuine if I were you.
I also imagine you would need a Head Gasket set if available, not just the head gasket. A set should have all sorts of essential gaskets and seals etc.

Try these guys www.keypart.com

 

Their OEM VolvoPenta parts are a fraction of the local price and delivery is generally faster as well!
