gasket alignment

Hi,

Hope its not a procomp thing!

As long as it is an oil return drain hole, carefully cut it out to match.

Will do,does this happen sometimes? I thought felpro would be accurate,the rest of the holes are perfect,including the dowel holes,just hoping its not the heads being drilled wrong! Will have another look tomorrow,they are slightly smaller than the head bolt ones.
Thanks
