Default 00 block and head with 05 head gasket ?!?

Juste had one engine rebuilt And the builder installed an 05 felpro gasket kit.

The valves tick way too much And after verification there s almost no Oil for the cam...

Does the gasket kit block that many ports? I read coolant ports were diffèrent but no idea on oil...

It's possible he installed the gasket upside down, which blocks the oiling port for the head.

You also can't use an 01+ head gasket in a 94-00 motor, because it blocks the majority of the coolant ports between the block and the head.

Your engine builder should fix this on his dime while you watch.

YEah we saw that, wrong head gasket block many coolant holes. Thing is, oil passage is at the same place and no oil came into the head... had pressure on stock sensor, but head ran dry and seized up one cap on exh cam. (picture to come)

You can't place the gasket upside down as the dowel pin (rivet on gasket) don't let you do it and don't cover one of water hole. Doing so will splash everywhere without engine running.

Builder will redo another head with a spare I had.. but why no oil ?!? Air went through and everything was fine, even sensor hole to oil pass in the block was ok

I don't understand the question... We checked the block passage and we did shoot some air below the head and checked every hole on top of the head.

I also order an BE oil pump gear set for the new engine, cheap insurance.
