sammi head gasket

I HAD my car running until the cam locked up! problem....we put the head gasket on backward...yea...i know. I might be looking at a new cam and new head. anyway please look at the picture and tell me if this is on right now, just to be 100 percent sure. (number "1") seems to be covered a little bit, looks like it goes to the water pump....is that right?

head gasket..

If it covers ANY hole, it is not the right gasket.

I would take it back to whare you got it with the photos posted here.

i did flip it after the first mess up. this is defently the way it should be, its just that whole at '1' that i dont like. its kind of half covering that hole, is that right? it doesnt fit right any other way, but all the other gaskets i got in my gasket kit fit fine

Thumbs down

Ack is right, Crap is Crap and I wouldn't use that on my engines. They should replace it with a properly made gasket. Unless they agree to buy you a new head.

if you already tourqed down that gasket DO NOT reuse it!
the small hole on the coolant passage may be on purpose. I have seen that in the past. other wise yes it is on right.

That gasket is crap , the blocked holes will cause hot spots in the head and probably some misfiring at idle . I'd get a better one for sure .
BTW, those cylinders are really polished , might want to check the rings ....

its right. every gasket I have ever had has blocked that hole some I think it is an oil drain from the head I dont recall now.
