Re: head gasket help (dtm337)

Copper is too maleable of a material to use as a spacer, I have heard of people having problems with theirs. Is the engine already o-ringed?
Avoid o-ring type gaskets if possible. I bought a spacer made of aircraft stainless that works great, it uses portions of a steel 24v headgasket.
