Customer Question

I have a Wolseley Merrytiller with a 3hp B & S engine circa 1962 which needs a new head gasket. The serial number is###-##-####01 640601 I have looked up the part number and
come up with 27670 but have been unable to find that part online. Would another
part number fit and do the job, there seem to be several similar online or can you please make another suggestion.
Many thanks
John

I have just looked up 495602 and the head gasket has 9 holes for

cylinder head bolts, mine has only 8 so not the one.
