Re-use intake gaskets?

I just bought my first diesel and I'm proud to say it's a powerstroke. Since I bought it, I started noticing that it wouldn't start when hot. I did a lot of research on this site as well as others and decided to swap the STC fitting (which thankfully was bad). While I had it all torn apart I decided to do an EGR delete as well as standpipes and dummy plugs. I was interested to see that the instructions that came with my EGR delete kit said to remove passenger intake bolts and loosen driver side and then just bolt them back down. Due to the built up filth on my engine, I decided to take the intake completely out anyway to clean everything real good. Now that I'm ready for assembly, I'm wondering if I can use the same intake gaskets, or if they need to be replaced? And if I can re-use the stock gaskets, how clean do I need to get them? I know this may be a stupid question but I dont want any loose ends once this thing is back together. Any advice here would be great. Thanks!

If your intake gaskets are in good condition they are re-useable. Make sure you install them back on the engine correctly. The little half moon shaped tab to the inside of the engine away from the head facing up.

They can only go one one way. I have had mine off several time and have had no issues reusing them.
