Well thanks for the earlier advice regarding fuel bleeding on the 900, she is now up and running again.
Next question, are Case 500 head gaskets readily available and are the expensive? Alternatively has anyone ever re-used head gaskets or had some made? I've re-used head gaskets several time on diesel Internationals with good success, just asking.

Yes, head gaskets are readily available. We stock them for the pre 1960 251 & 377 engines, and also build Head Gasket Sets. As for re-using gaskets, a gasket is meant to be squashed once. Personally, I have never seen a head gasket used twice successfully. Using a gasket in an application where there is no pressure is one thing, but a head gasket is subjected to extreme pressure, (compression & combustion) and temperatures and when one considers the labor involved in changing a head gasket, I don't think it makes sense to chance it.
