Ok I need to replace the head gasket I've never done it before so when I went to look for parts on Alpha sports I noticed that their looks like two gaskets an inner and outer head gasket. Is it two differnt gaskets ??? Also I'm changing them becuse I belive that coolent is geeting into the cylinder I don't belive the heads are cracked. But do I need to or should I also change that cylinder gasket at the base. If I do is it very hard to do. Also I belive that the bolts have to be torqued down and put back in a pattern. Does any one know what they must be torqued at and what pattern the bolts go back on. I have and EXT 530 thanks

well if its on a liquid cooled i dont think they are really head gaskets, just 2 big 0-rings, one on the outside and one on the inside, and the bottom gaskets arent that hard, just 4 nuts to pull the head off and plop them back on. i usually torque heads to around 30 ft/lb and as long as u use a start pattern for tightening it doesnt matter which order u tighten
