I have a D15B bored to 75.5mm.

I ordered the gasket kit from FJT.

The head gasket BARELY goes over the cylinders (it doesnt cover the cylinders though)

Is this ok? Will this be an issue in the future?
I'm not sure if the kit came with a 75mm head gasket. But it looks like it could work. Or should I just replace it with a Cosmetic 75.5mm?

^not necessarily. Not saying I agree with it, because I don't, but I know people that don't use them and get away with it. Not a good idea IMO.

OP your hg is fine.

Thanks :)

I looked through a few other peoples builds, and I notice when they take motor shots they dont have the dowels in. (Dowel pins I'm assuming).

This is my first build and I've done a bit of research (lots of reading on this site; thanks d-series.org!).

I thought that the head studs align the HG and head. Seems like it. They do hold it aligned pretty well.

studs will only center it so much with pretty good amount of slack. be probably dam impossible to keep the gasket perfectly centered without them. maybe it's just me but prefer to work smarter not harder.

headgasket looks like it will do fine and build looks like it's coming along great

Lol. I think the package said "Taiwan" :sweatdrop:

But I've read a few people on here using FJs' gasket kit without problems.
:nono:

Thanks! :yes:

I plan to show everyone the build once it's closer to running.

I've done a lot thus far. Just keeping it out of the public till its closer to finished.
