Head gaskets,,??

Postby velvetrider » Thu Sep 10, 2015 3:04 pm



Putting new gaskets on. I got these w/ a top end kit from Athena. I discovered that there is no difference in which one goes on which side. Just turn gasket over to match oil drain hole in bottom of the head. Am I missing something here,,?

Nope- that's how you tell which way to put them on. One gasket will fit both sides, but you can put them on "backwards". Regards, Johnny
