Victor Reinz – Mercedes Benz OM457/OM460 Head gasket

The OM 457 and OM 460 series of engines starting at engine number 085588 make use of modified cylinder heads.

While the previous cylinder head has an even sealing surface, the modified design features a groove milled out around the drillings

for water/pressurized oil. The cylinder-head gasket was adjusted to increase its sealing capacity.

The main features which distinguish cylinder head gasket are that the rubber gasket lips of the drillings for water/pressurized oil are about

3 mm higher.
