Oil "slinger" cover is o-ringed.... Definately reusable if you remove the cover carefully.
I'd replace the others you mentioned...(Buy one new set and use as templates for hand-cut gaskets...)
Only "worry" point is when/if replacing the cam journal gaskets.... The cams must be shimmed to have correct "sideplay", so thicker gaskets are/can be problematic....Depends on the paper thickness you use of course....
Using grease on the gaskets will help with keeping them in position for fitting and also when taking off covers. Many gasgets can be reused if they are removed carefully. You have be sensible though if it looks knackerd then it probably is best not to reuse it. Using Grease cannot be done on the cylinder head gasket though as it is there to hold the firey contents of the combustion chamber.
ok, forgot to ask and was searching the web. How thick? There is .25 to 1 mil?? I have a set of new gaskets coming and I guess I could try and measure the thickness? Probably going to cut the side covers and points cover first.
