Thanks, Greg. I'm the type of person that really just was going to replace them either way. I don't want the smallest thing to be detrimental just because I was being lazy.
Great, added a couple of things to my previous post. Also that area you circled on the gasket, if you lay it on the motor and think about it, there is coolant on both sides of it there. If you've seen the original OEM head gaskets they were separate fire rings and an open design except for the oil galleys. They changed to the current design because they were easy to disturb and things moved around in service.
