BUYER BE­WARE

Car Mechanics (UK) - - Your Letters -

A warn­ing to CM read­ers about buy­ing new-old-stock gas­kets for clas­sic cars. I re­cently bought a con­ver­sion gas­ket set on ebay for my 1965 Hill­man en­gine and was dis­mayed to find a sticker on the set in­form­ing me that it con­tains as­bestos.

Ac­cord­ing to the Health and Safety Ex­ec­u­tive web­site (www.hse.gov.uk), it is il­le­gal to sup­ply any ar­ti­cle con­tain­ing as­bestos, whether for money or free of charge. I con­tacted ebay to com­plain about the site, but who knows how many other sell­ers might be sell­ing the same items. Robert Peach
