Update..
The head gasket is split between 4 and 5 and 2 and 3. The 4-5 split is larger.
I haven't checked the head with a straight edge yet. I'm putting together an order for parts that need to be replaced due to inspection while taking things apart.
I have the cam timing tools and will figure out the Timeserts shortly. What is the advantage of Timeserts vs Helicoils? I've heard that Timeserts are preferable from some e30M3 racer types but would welcome additional opinion based on facts. Currently doing the cleaning up part before I take the valves out and any machine work gets done.
