head gasket and head cover gasket
when installing a head gasket and a head cover gasket on a gp1200 the gaskets have a raised section on one side, my question is which side faces up the raised side or the does the indention side face up? i think the head gasket will only install one way so the bolt patterns will line up but i am unsure about the head cover gasket. any help will be appreciated. i was also wondering if i should use some kind of sealant like gasket maker or sealant spray on the gaskets before installing.

The head cover gasket will only go on one way as well it has the little circle part that goes to cylinder #1. Are these new OEM metal style gaskets? if so I use a light film of marine grease to help them seal. This also gives me an opportunity to use them more than once should I need to pull them. Make sure all mating surfaces are clean and free of an debris or old gasket material.
