AU gasket should be re usable as it is an MLS (multi layer steel) gasket..
should be able to give it a good clean and away you go

some people spray them with some sealant (i think the same s**t you spray on copper gaskets)

Dowel pin? Its got 4 bolts hasnt it, allen head bolts(to adjust the vernier gear)?
The lifters should be soaked in oil thouroughly if theyve been out of the motor to minimize startup ticking.
No head gaskets arent reusable, only if your stuck in the desert dude.


I think he meant the little dowel on the gear that fits into the camshaft side that sits on the intake side of the head when at TDC.

yes thats the dowel pin i was on about and i reset the timing chain tensioner after i installed the new cam gear after i put the head back on and i got a loaner head off a mates paddock bomb (ebII) till i get a new head as ill be putting it on in the morning and i also got a new dowel pin made up today on a mates lathe and pressed it into the timing gear so ill be trying again in the morning ill let you all know how i go as ill be reusing the head gasket too

By the sounds of it you didnt tighten the cam bolt up enough because the cam gear would have to walk to do that :(
Did you loctite the bolt?
After hearing that you got a dowel pin made up i am led to believe you want this motor to fail again, i would be getting a genuine replacement or a new gear.
Damn and i just saw youre reusing the head gasket??? they have raised sections on them and once they have been torqued down they dont work the same again, you are gonna have bulk problems with your motor dude coz your doing it all wrong. Good luck with that.

A- I DID TIGHTEN THE CAM BOLT
B- I DIDNT LOCKTIGHT IT
C- I GOT A DOWEL PIN MADE OF HARDENED STEEL
D- IT IS A CROW VERNIER CAM GEAR AND IT FAILED BECAUSE THE DOWEL PIN WAS ONLY PROTRUDING THROUGHT THE CAM GEAR BY 3MM
E- I HAVE A STD HEAD GASKET (NEW) I PUT ON FOR THE TIME BEING BUT SAME BOLTS
F- AND IVE GOT A COMPLETE EF MOTOR HERE REBUILT TO PUT IN IT WITH A TURBO BUT DECIDING ON IF TO GO AUTO OR MANUAL YET ?

ONLY THING IS THAT ITS RAINING AT MOMENT AND CANT GET OUT TO WORK ON THE CAR

Head bolts arent reusable, cam gear should be loctited.
I cant see crow selling a brand new dodgy gear myself, if by some small chance it was id go straight to them,seems obvious.

The head bolts are "torque to yield" type bolts, they stretch, and you shouldn't ever reuse them to fit a head to an engine unless you want the gaskit to fail again, soon. You can however usually reuse head bolts to hold engines onto stands. :D

I doubt the ED rocker gear will fit in the VCT head, but i don't know for sure.

Cheers
