1966 Ford 289 2-BBL Head Gasket, Engine from a Full Size Ford
Yesterday I was putting on the head gaskets on my 289, I ran Into an issue, first NAPA gave me two left side head gaskets, and secondly there are 4 holes for coolant to flow through on the block but only 2 on the gasket. Yes I know that I have gasket in the second picture is backwards. I was wondering if anyone has rebuilt a 1966 Ford 289 2 BBL from a full size ford, and tell me if this is the right gasket for this block, or if I got the wrong gasket all together. The first picture I marked in red where 2 of the coolant holes are in red (1 and 2) and where the OTHER 2 holes are on the block in teal (3 and 4). The front of the gaskets have no holes.
