Head gasket is an easy fix, you will need the head skimmed though £45 -£70 but you can buy a 2nd hand head for little more, so gasket (aftermarket) £25.20 and 2nd hand head £100-150 and a days work and you should be good to go?(With cambelt replaced added) What has caused your gasket failure though? radiator, waterpump?

Mark, what's the rest of the engine condition like ?
I blew a head gasket last year because unknown to me, the previous owner just kept filling with pure water and it ate into the ally block/head.
Unfortunately for me, having had it all fixed, I had a major oil "issue" on the M45 so I'm considering an engine (or engine/gearbox) replacement.

What sort of money are you looking for ?
