Reuse Head Gaskets? Empty Reuse Head Gaskets?

Post  1EFF100 Fri Dec 06, 2019 4:31 am

Heads installed, torqued then removed. Engine never fired. Is it okay to use them again or not advisable?

Thanks.

I've been told with MLS and copper that they can be reused. That said if you do reuse very carefully inspect the coating on the gasket for damage
