I am running "Dart" aluminum heads on my 350 SBC in Queenie's 67 Camaro.

I don't remember the exact part number of the gaskets ... but I do remember this.

Dart had a very specific recommendation as to what gasket to use ...

You might want to talk to "Edelbrock" and see what they say.

Edelbrock only recommends one brand of cylinder head gasket for their Ford heads, regardless of engine.

Fel-Pro.


I'm running ROL head gaskets on my 331 with AFR heads.

I would still revert back to my earlier post ... To simply say "FelPro" doesn't really answer the specific question.

Keep in mind "FelPro" is a brand ... FelPro makes a multitude of different head gaskets for the same engine ... this thread alone referes to two different specific part numbers.

Ask Edelbrock which specific part number of gasket they recommend for the heads you have.

I guess I'll refer back to my original answer and be a little more specific.

Edelbrock recommends the Fel-Pro #1018 for cylinder head part # 60669 & # 60679. Assuming one of those part #s is the heads you have.

If not, just check the Edelbrock website for the gasket they recommend for what ever heads you have.
