More details. I can't find a good detailed drawing of this, so here goes.
1. The head gasket is symmetrical.
2. The knock pins on the top of the jugs ONLY go on the forward outboard studs, as there is a "landing" set into both the top of the barrels and the bottom of the head for the pins to go into. The knock pins, which are all the same size, are too large a diameter to go into the rear outboard holes, which, again, have no landing for them to set on, therefore, they would go into the head/cases with no place to stop them.
3. On the TOP of the HEAD, there are two stepped holes, to locate two knock pins, but they are on the REAR outboard studs.
4. I noticed that I put the little rubber o rings on the studs to go INTO the knock pins between the head and jugs. OOpps. was this my error? I was sure that the oil supply/oil return was through the REAR studs. It is odd, though that the knock pins are between the front suds on the top of the jugs and on the rear studs on the TOP of the head, not on the front studs.
Any of this make sense? What I really need, I guess, is a detail as to the installation of the head. (and I do not know wha t is located under the barrels, as I have not removed them yet. i am going to try and salvage these for the moment. I can easily look into it, though, by lifting the head a bit. I know, jb, bad move, but i think it'll work.) So . . . Where do the knock pins go, where do the little rubber orings go, and why is this head diffferent, if it is? Or did I do all of this right and I had a bad head gasket.
And am I correct as to the oil supply/return route?
