    785 head gaskets

    For all you guys buying new head gaskets everytime you pull your head thats CRAZY you can reuse that headgasket a bunch of times again and again and if your worried about it just put a thin coat of 1211 on it .
    This goes for all the Polaris ski's with steel gaskets

    or copper spray

    Thanks,
    DOHH--I have a big thick manual that came with my 95-SL750, I forgot about it, it has a section in the back for the 97 and 98 pros,
