Default Re: blueprinting not hotrodding

Mine was delivered with the plug pointing aft. I will flip it before I start it. My old yamahas had a head gasket with a rolled ridge in the center which got squished on torqing the head. These flat metal gaskets are probably fine for a couple re-uses like you say. I responded to this thread before i saw your post regarding your 302 rebuild and was trying to help a noob, which you are obviously not. I've had personal experience with the reality of a blown automobile head gasket a couple times. It's not pretty. Good Luck and Welcome!
