Re-use head rings

Recommended Posts

Wondering if you can re-use old head o-rings if you just pull the head to check the cylinder and the rings still look good?

Yep. If there are no signs of nicks or cracks, your good. I make sure they are seated in the cylinder groove before I re-install the head. I do keep a spare set of o-ringds on hand if one gets damaged.

Check to see if they are round still. If they have been in there for awhile they may have taken a set and are now square or egg shaped. In that case they are getting hard and I would replace them. I lubricate them with a seal grease or at least some kind of grease.
