    All Stude V8's (232, 259, 289) would use the same valve cover gaskets. All 232's would require 8 hold down bolt seals. Only the early 259's and 289's require 8...the later ones 4.

        The early four bolt cover (four per cover) take a smaller gasket (width of the gasket)than the later two bolt covers. Either will work but better fit if you use the correct ones.

          Same size, but there is a early and late design, but I think either will work.

            Tx Ted. I learn something about these cars every day.

              Afraid not. Would like to but just too many things I need to get done here. Hope to make Nebraska next year.
