Re: Installing new intake gaskets...looking for good tips
Ok, have a few more questions. My gaskets arrived today but they are not exactly like the old ones. For one, the port size is bigger and there is a missing hole in the center of the gasket (where the two center bolts are).
The package says they are for 1.40 x 2.25 ports and all 260, 289-351w ('62-89) including TFS, GT-40, N heads. The ports sizes are taller than the ports on my heads ('74 351w). Can I still use them or do they need to go back?
Second, I got the Fel-Pro black composite type. What side goes towards the block...the smooth glossy back side or flat gray side?
351w(.060), ported & polished heads with 1.94/1.60 valves, 10.3 comp, stealth intake, 274XE cam, Holley 750 dp, Mallory dist., shorty headers, flowmasters, 4:10 gear, c-4 with 3700 stall converter, subframes, electric fan
