Do you get one chance with head gaskets? Once you torque them down is that it. I had to pull my heads off before the 289 even really ran. I don't want to cut any corners... just wondering if I should buy new ones. Using Fel-Pro blue stripe.

Thanks

I called Fel-Pro on this once... The tech there said, "As long as the gasket didn't stick to the head or block and didn't move out of position, it would be okay."

I still ended up replacing it since I didn't want to take any chances. Thoughts of tearing a brand new engine down to change a head gasket were just too haunting...


Good Luck!
