Good catch Dame The heads are identical and most places you get the gaskets..it is the same gasket with a different orientation on the arrow.

Thomas.. don't worry.. I made that the same weight as what came off. Plus..us Bonne'* don't fret about a couple of pounds like our GP counterparts.

Today'* progress included finishing up the tightening of the cam bolt (74lbs + 90 degrees seems excessive for a cam bolt) Did it though. Had to put on the flywheel to get this done and lock the motor from spinning.

Got the front cover and water pump on while chatting with Bill and Don

Sorry if this is a stupid question, but don't you have to take that new TA mount off again to put your belt on?
I'm probably 99.9% sure you wouldn't forget to do that, but it'd suck to drop the thing in only to mess around with the belt.

I'm sitting here at the PC ...lol

Peter.. I can run it..just look at the harmonic balancer...179,000 miles and looking good

Bob..something'* not right with the pulley...a belt won't sneak past it with the way it'* currently sitting. New pulley in my future.

I did something else! (runs off for picture) Meanwhile..who can guess?

I was also cleaning up tools.. also.
