Should you always replace a gasket if removed. I Just removed two metal pieces of off a engine and the gasket is stuck to both pieces. It tore when I removed both pieces but it is stuck to both pieces so if I where to just put the two metal pieces back toghether it should look as good as knew. Thanks for clearing this up for me.

Although technically there are a few gaskets that can be re-used, most can't

I would replace both gaskets. From what part(s) are these gaskets from?
Scrape off the old gaskets and clean off/up the part(s) where they go and depending on the part, use a gasket caulk/sealant to replace the new gaskets.
