If you look at a new gasket right next to a used gasket you can physically see the Crush that happens. I haven't, simply because I can't affort to ruin my motor. Buying parts is expensive enough the first time!

I have a bunch of used condoms. Do you want them? Sorry, gaskets, unless specially designed to be reused like some valve cover gaskets, IMO should be like condoms. I don't reuse either.

Also reused PTO gaskets where it hasn't broken taking it off, using holimar to reseal it without issue.only do this once or twice before replacing gasket though.
I only do this on my own ski, no one else's as its my problem if there is an issue & because I'm always pulling bits apart playing.
