VF3s install soon gasket ?
I've got a set of gaskets on the way from L Horning & a set of new VF3s waiting to be installed in my 08GPR. When I remove the stock reeds are the gaskets gona rip, can they be reused? I know I should just get new ones, but I would like to install them asap. I have reused many gaskets on my WaveBlasters with no problem.
Anyone have some gaskets they want sell & can ship fast?
also I have been told that the head gasket is reuseable, I never would have thought that a head gasket could be reused. Is this gasket commonly reused?

Get your gaskets from Lowell.

L Honring = Lowell
They are in tha mail as I stated in post. I'm sure there are other gaskets required other than the ones I ordered for Lowell. If I understand correctly his gaskets are just for the reeds, remember there is a balance plate to TB gasket too (maybe even something else).
BTW Lowell is very easy to deal with.

The OEM reeds have there own seal built into them so no gaskets for the reeds themselves. like stated above the balance plate to reed cover gasket should be replaced if it is bad.

also you can re-use the head gasket... I usually re-torque them about 3 times before replacing it
