M104: Gasket Replacement

Just throwing pictures out from a head gasket job that I'm doing. Car was burning coolant at an accelerated rate, so time for a gasket and overall reseal.

 Without further adieu:

Can see here how the coolant crossover tube has a totally flattened O-ring where it enters the water pump area.

Another totally flattened O-ring to the water neck where it attaches to the timing cover. Somebody thought it'd be a good idea to reseal an old O-ring with RTV.

Exhaust Cam timing markers

 Intake cam timing markers. Seem to be off a tooth, but that may be because of the timing advance magnet.

A bit overboard on the RTV there, Mr. Previous Assholemechanic

Timing cover was missing the center water jacket O-ring!
