No, there are no orings, but the head has to be machined every time you replace the head gasket, or it will not seal,Tim

No to phone call, already thought about machine shop, motor was fine, replacing gasket after rebuild was preventive these are prone to go out. Oil was clean no water in it it is tork to specs and degreed, can't explain such a heavy flow of oil

the head HAS to be machined, this give the surface the proper finish to seal, Tim
