You can replace the bis gasket with the engine in situ the hardest part is removing the carb you need a short 10m spanner as is supplied in the standard tool kit, when mine went I used a tin of K-Seal gasket sealer which is still working in the system 🙂

Hi
Just replaced the carb for the 3rd time this weekend thinking the car had over fuelling problems.
So had a thought it maybe head gasket and managed to find a cheap endoscope camera on eBay, Just need to find the motivation

Although I didn’t like using gasket seal I always had it in my boot knowing that this was a common fault, it started spewing water out 100 miles away from home but seems to have done the trick while i get the motivation to do the job properly 😀 it’s about £8 on eBay and I recommend it to anyone that has a Bis to carry a bottle just in case👍
