We highly recommend that you replace these whenever you pull the heads off a 1300 through a 1600 engine. The stock tubes have a crush built into each end. If you try to stretch the old ones they will revert back to where they were crushed when they heat up. Most likely, they'll also leak. One car requires 8 tubes.

We sell the seals separately or as a set of 16.
