Elring cylinder head gaskets installation procedures

I recently get the gaskets from OKP and they informed instructions or recommendations are not available from the manufacturer. They said the gaskets must be installed professionaly by someone who knows the procedures. I did not find anyone at Elring who could provide guidance. Any help will be appreciated.

Here is the factory procedure. This has been debated here for long time. Specially the hot torquing and unscrewing of nuts as part of the procedure, as this procedure has since long time ago been left by Alfa on other engines.
Nowadays its always cold torquing, also the retorquing and no losening of nuts. Just lubricate the nuts well at the first installation. So what remains of this instruction are the cold values. This is how I would do it! However feel free to follow the old Alfa instructions if you find that more assuring. Here it is! Also look for site alfamontreal.info

exactly today 13 years ago 2006 I made my order for a big bunch of Elring's.
Delivered 1st march I started to make the parcels. My office was a BIG mess, everywhere gaskets, papers, cartons and knifes The Elring red cartons had been to big for sending so I had to cut each carton on 2 sides, place safe each single gasket in the plastic bag with carton. Brown paper wrapped and 9 rolls of tape. Most work had been address + customs papers by hand. In post office the guy and I needed 2,5 hours to logg in all in low pre-computer times of German post office in the "outback" Hann. Münden. Also included a few sets of luggage straps and dashboard covers, lamp screws and sticker sets.

The best of this event had been = 50 parcels around the whole world - not ONE was lost, even a 5pack to Down under or 1 to Costa Rica ! Still I am proud that you guys got them. Was my pleasure

OK Here's a quick question. I still have one of those head gasket sets shipped from Hanna & Dirk. They have been temperature controlled in the plastic for 13 years. Are they still good to use?

Dale, keep those gaskets indefinitely, they will prevent the gaskets on your engine from failing. :-) Honestly I suspect that they will be fine for a long time, if properly stored like you said.
