    It is kinda like using toilet paper twice! Not a very good idea!!!

    Exactly. You're not going to get the gasket in the exact same place it came from, even if it was stuck there, it could be just a millimeter off, and you're done. With all the machining marks the gasket compensates for, it may work or it won't, but we won't stop you if ya wanna give it a go. Unless you pull it apart often, replace em.

    If you purchase a set of Cometic head Gaskets?Then a little Copper coat and put them back on again,and again!It a bigger investment up Front,but in the Long Run it will be the Way to GO!
