As you have probably guessed the one hole and two hole identifiers mean different thicknesses in the gasket. Technically yes you can use it but will it cause an issue with running......possibly.

for the correct answer give these guys a ring on Tel: +44 (0)1246 455350

They will give you a definitive answer advice for the task your taking on

Cheers Dave, they're the lads who sent me the thicker gasket by mistake, they say it doesn't make any difference.

at least you have a genuine knowledgeable answer, i assume its a one piece gasket, as the individual ones require the end plates modifying.

you gain nothing from individual gaskets as the gaskets are covered by adjacent heads, so when you remove one you disturb the head next to it
