When performing step 1, care should be taken to position cylinder head gasket over
dowel pins with word TOP visible or gasket damage may result.
Steps given are typical for all three cylinder heads.
Before performing step 1, if waterholes in cylinder block are free of erosion, use gasket
with standard white grommets, 0.097 to 0.103 inch (3.8 to 4.1 mm) thick. If erosion is
evident, use black grommets, 0.107 to 0.113 inch (4.2 to 4.4 mm) thick. No grommet
retainers are required.
