No tricks for the gaskets as they are straight forward to do...
Nikasil/Alusil change was around '96-'98, they were recalled !

thanks dabsy . i done it today and it was straight forward and pretty easy, a fairly tight fit with the a/c hoses though.. And that crappy flakey paint, what were they thinking..
