 +===== Gaskets =====
 +If you are using MLS head gaskets, you need to test fit them with the heads on to make sure the rivets don't get sandwiched under the head surface. \\
 +Snug the bolts down lightly, and check the rivets holding the gasket together, you can see them in the pics below. \\
 +You want to be sure they are not trapped between the head and cylinder deck. \\
 +If you need to, you can remove the rivets with a Dremil rotary tool with the metal cutting blade. \\
 +You just have to go slow and cautious not to cut into the gasket. \\
