Real noob question here

Yeah this one is a bit noobish, but I really need to know.

Which head gasket is the base, and which is the top; the one with the metal around the cylinders or the thinner one.

Thanks guys.

There isn't much pressure on the cylinder - cases joint, so no need for a fancy gasket there. There's a ton of pressure on the head - cylinder joint, so the metal gasket goes there.

Get yourself a manual.
