[ROVERNET - UK] Clickety Clat

I did notice the head gasket overlapped the bores by 1/8" or so.  I wonder 
(hope) this is causing some of the clicking sound.  Maybe when torqued down, 
the overlapped area recessed slightly into the bores and the pistons are 
hitting the gasket.
I will order a 2200 gasket straight away (are you listening, Pierre!?).
Thank you for the input.
