    yamaha 65U head gasket ?

    Hey there,

    Looking for some help please. Just rebuild a yamaha 1200 nov 65u engine.

    I put the head gasket on and later realized I may have put it on wrong. I have the tab closest to the Stator side. Also the extra cooling holes are closest to the exhaust ports.

    But I see online the tab is meant to be by the PTO side.

    Can I leave it the way it is? Or do I need to switch it around. I already tightened it down and would rather not redo it. Before I put the exhaust pipe on I'd like to hear your opinions.

    Thanks!

    Normally the bigger or extra cooling holes go opposite the exhaust. That way the water doesn't all flow straight out, it circulates around the back of the cylinder.

    Can anyone confirm this? Tomorrow I will be putting the rest of the exhaust on and the carbs. I need to know for sure by tomorrow.

    Just double checked for you. The tab on the gasket MUST align with the tab on the cylinder.........which is in the rear.
