    cooper head gasket

    Quick question, the copper head gasket that is for sale, at the online store, can it be reused or onetime deal thing?

    i personally would never re-use a head gasket. it's just to critical of a component. but i've seen the copper ones reused in cars before

    In a pinch, you could clean it and use a very light
    coating of hi-temp copper spray gasket seal on it....
    That being said, I wouldn't reuse it.. Expensive but
    what is it worth to you if it leaks and/or doesn't seal correctly??

    Cooper head gaskets can be reused a few time.You just have to eneal them which is heating them up.I would never run another cooper gasket again though.The stock ones are the best just have to replace every time.

    if your having trouble with headgasket problems, get the block guard its the dogs, if you have the copper gasket then that can be reused many times
