[TR] head gasket

I specifically install the gasket with the seams down.  If you've had 
your head milled it open up the combustion chamber and you'll have 
less of the seam compressed by the head.

So, another confirmation that you're good to go and don't need to 
worry about it.

Cheers, Tony Drews
