i wouldn't mess around with somethin like a hg. put a new one on. no need to have pre-mature failure because you thought it would be ok.

Yeah, but if you torque everything down and use the engine, you shouldnt take the chance in using that old gasket. It probably wont work out the best.

Well U can alsways just install according to the manual and
RETORQUE all the bolts again to make sure everything is OK.
If it's bad then you replace, if not then you're in luck
u can either TRY to save TIME or save MONEY. Go with whatever you have more of.
