Just make sure you don't get any shavings in the new head. This will save you from having to order another gasket which, if Murphy is looking over your shoulder, may very well be the incorrrect one as well.

You read my mind Steve. I'll tape off the area, place rags around and have a vacuum hose right there to suck up the shavings.
