  • intake gaskets

    i need to know which way the intake gaskets go. there are stamped so one side is raised and the other side is indented does the raised side go down toward the block or up toward the intake.



    Thanks

    Raised side goes up.
    Use "Copper Coat", gold or silver (any heavy metallic) paint to help them seal. NO silicone.

    Though..I'd bet they seal fine upside down.

      Ryan -
      Raised side up toward intake. Lay flat sides on heads; carefully lower intake; make necessary adjustments to line everything up, including gasket bolt holes with threaded holes in heads; and bolt it down. BE CAREFUL NOT TO EXCEED TORQUE SPECS!!

            I like to use studs in the intake , one or two on each side, get a bolt started then remove the studs.Keeps everything lined up like it should be. good luck
