    I have all the nessecary parts for a d15b7 with a d16z6 mini-me head but i was looking for gasket diagrams for a head job. I got my head all redone and new valve seals, but the shop who did it said they would replace all the gaskets they would need to as well as the valve seal when i brought them the gasket set. when i got the head back their was an old little L shaped gasket i never saw when i brought the head in about three inchs long. And their is a new one in my gasket set , I don't know where it goes. Also I need to adjust my valves before i do the job I don't know what the gap needs to be with the feeler guages.?

    thanks

    Definitely post pics, I'm not familiar with that gasket. You could just ask the shop that did the work for you.

    Yeah an "L" shaped gasket sounds odd, most gaskets are circular. Could it be for something like the vtec solenoid or fuel rail?

    I'm pretty sure the vtec solenoid uses just that rubber grommet with the filter on it, no other gaskets. Maybe a part on the throttle body?
