That is a tiny workshop!

Fingers crossed the gasket holds.

yes, used the ARP bolts @ 9,0 kg - i trust them as they use the finest material available. i would be a bit wary if they were the original ones sandy -- need to get some oil (the flush type)

I'd be interested to know how the Cometic gasket goes - especially since it seems to be a good solution for those cases where the head has been skimmed too much. Some people's views toward MLS gaskets on this forum aren't encouraging toward their use however! I have no experience with them.

What was your experience when the gasket was used before? - You said it was a "used" gasket.

It’s not the size of the shop, it’s the man who knows best how to use it.
