    I have a Civic Dx 1.5L D15
    Im replacing the head gasket and i need to know the sequence of tightning the head bolts.

    Another this is that:
    I havent shaved the head (only replacing the burnt head gasket) because the surface doesnt look damanged/bent/cracked or anything EXCEPT around the narrow surface between the cylinder bores the head is compressed 0.0035 of an inch, which im assuming it'll be ok without the need to shave it (since putting a new gasket).
    btw, which brand gasket is better?

    Is it advisable? what do you guys think about this?


    Also if theres any other important suggestion that i should/need to know please tell me, cuz this is the first time ive opened the engine.

    ^^^^^^^ put a straight edge on the head (on different locations) for testing the eveness of the surface and if there is any light gap, check the light gap by the feeler gauge. (this will let u know the location of the compressed area).
    simple :popcorn:
