Happy Saturday folks.

I have the front end of my Jeep off for a variety of reasons and I noticed my timing cover gasket is leaking. Might as well replace that while I am in there and if the timing chain is sloppy (which at 200k it may very well be), I might as well replace that too. I've seen if there's 1/2" of play, the chain should be replaced. Meanwhile, I've seen that they should be fine for the life of the engine. shrug

Anyways, Oreilly has 2 FelPro gasket sets. Which one should I use?

And I just realized I put this in the Auto General Topics sub-forum..

2 tubes and an extra gasket/ ring.

Never done the job before so I don't know what it would be for.

Also, I am not a fan of gasket makers if it didn't come with it from the factory.

The gaskets look identical to me, I'd also get the one with two gaskets...nothing worse than needing the 2nd gasket, not having it, and dancing around in the garage yelling about it.
