Guzziology tells you exactly where to put these little O-rings, but there always seems to be some confusion. So here it is again:

  1. Put the base gasket against the block.
  2. Put two of the O-rings on top of the base gasket. They go on the two shorter studs, the ones at 12 o'clock and 6 o'clock.
  3. Put the cylinder on.
  4. Put the head gasket on the cylinder.
  5. Put the head on.
  6. Put the remaining 4 O-rings under the rocker arm trestle. They go on the four longer studs.
  7. Put the rocker arm trestle on.
