You would probably be fine, but I wouldn't chance it.Welp. I was feeling pretty proud of myself. I got the passenger head put together and set into place today. I have just the outside (non-stud) bolts in snug (not torqued) to keep it in place. I torqued in the glowplugs and was just setting the injectors when it dawned on me... I didn't put the 3 back studs in the head before setting it. So, now I get to pull it back out and do it over again.
What do you guys think regarding the gasket? Just those outside bolts snugged to keep in place. Am I OK still using it? My only thought is with the o-ring heads, is there a chance those have already impressed into the gasket? Ugh, stupid. The good news is after doing it once, I have more confidence and will be able to go faster the 2nd time.
