|April 19, 2007 - A little gotcha built into the Miata engine.|
This is the oil feed for the head. If you put the head gasket on upside down, everything works just fine - other than the fact that you cover up the oil feed. Then you starve your head of oil and it's time to take it all apart again. I've talked to two people recently who have done this. It's an easy mistake to make with expensive consequences - a bad combination.
