    Goetze does an elastomer one as well! I don't think these are rubbish

    But these are hard to find as well, I think Federal Mogul pulled the plug. The BW750 is no longer displayed on their part catalogue.
    Some shops say dispatch in about 1 month therefore this MIGHT be just summer stuff :) Factory on holiday
    FAI is next

    Just got another email from another agent saying that it's not coming back in stock.
    Also payen removed it from their site.
    I don't think we will see it again. So it's either mls from them or some alternative. Not bga... I know those ae rubbish

    Latest update is now back on federal mogul catalogue, so it will come back in stock I think.

    Does anyone want a Payen BW750 + JN963 (rocker cover gasket) both for 55 quid delivered? I have them in "stock" extra bit.

    Amazon tells me that the Payen BW750 gaskets I've ordered are coming in, so fingers crossed :)

    Seems like the bw750 is now impossible to find. This will dig k series graves a bit deeper.
