Got to looking closer at the parts book and there are actually two gaskets per head. a 7H9983 and a 7H1582, the second one is on the cylinder side. Maybe that is the answer to your situation. No reference is made to this in the service manual so I'd recommend checking with Cat on this....sorry I didn't catch it sooner. "just thinking" was on to it.
You still need to do the liner height check as it appears you have been running without the liners being restrained due to the missing gasket. This post was edited by Old Magnet at 09:01:21 09/14/12.

NO!!!!!, if the liners are low, machine and shim the seats to get the height right. About the extra gaskets Pete just mentioned, they are for around the push rods. They should be metal with silicone rubber bonded to them. Later Bob
