Well, its one thing after anotherI was putting my aluminum heads back on tonight and a pulled the threads out of the block with a head bolt. I have already done a search and found that its ok to heli coil it. Thats not my question though, I want to know if I can still use the gasket. Its a felpro 1003, I was on my 50lb/ft pass over the bolts. I go 30,50,60,65. I since I didnt run the motor should I be able to still use the gasket? That is, after I pull the head and heli coil the block. Im not going to sleep well tonight thats for sure.
