  Gasket design - Sealing areas
Posted by: MS 90314-2 Intake Gaskets - 12-09-2017, 08:48 PM - Forum: Intake Manifold Gaskets - Replies (1)


I have just installed a set of the above mentioned intake gaskets on my SBC 350.
After torqued to spec, I was set to paint to cover up exposed gasket areas due to the cutaway of my edelbrock performer rpm.

What I noticed is that there are raised sealing lines that protrude next to 1,3 & 6,8 intake ports. Both are towards the center exhaust of the intake runners.
I can't understand WHY I didn't see them as I was installing the intake....as I was very meticulous in placing the exhaust restrictors, and RTV during installation. Now that everything is sealed, it's all I can see and I'm concerned that I did something incorrectly.  Confused
But I know I was looking at details...and if something wasn't right, I would have seen it!

So can you give me a clue as to what (if anything) should be done?
Also what are those sealing areas?
I was going to post a picture, but I don't have an HTP site to post it. Anyway a Fel Pro expert can hopefully answer this without a pic.

  Mazda Miata Exhaust Gaskets
Posted by: Steve - 12-06-2017, 10:04 PM - Forum: Exhaust Gaskets - Replies (2)

I need the following exhaust gaskets for a 1999 Mazda Miata:

The one that goes between the exhaust manifold and the downpipe
The one that goes between the downpipe and the cat converter
The little one that goes between the EGR pipe and the intake manifold/EGR valve (small one with two bolts)

The local NAPA did not have these or the know the part numbers.

  Fel-Pro HS 9902 PT-3 Cylinder Head Gasket Set
Posted by: Eddie - 12-04-2017, 11:34 PM - Forum: Gasket Sets - Replies (1)

I ordered GS 9902 PT-3 not knowing my 99 ford ranger actually needs 9902 PT-4 because the engine was built in the later half the year and they made some modifications. One being that the valve seals are different sizes. Wondering what other differences there are or if I can still use the rest of the gasket set to put my truck back together

Hi, I have a 2003 Ford Ranger with 3.0L and I need to replace the valve cover gasket and the upper intake manifold gasket since that has to come off in order to replace the driver's side valve cover gasket.   Which part number should I use and what are the torque specs for the valve cover and for the upper intake manifold please?  Thank You!

  SBC one piece oil pan gasket selection
Posted by: Paul - 12-03-2017, 04:42 PM - Forum: Other Performance Gaskets - Replies (3)

Hi there,
I have a 1981 Corvette that I will be doing some engine work on. I want to fit a one piece gasket but am unsure as to which one I need. It doesnt help that the motor is not original to the car but is an aftermarket GM Goodwrench crate engine.

Engine is a 350 SBC mated to a manual 4spd transmission and It has a passenger side dipstick.
Originally I thought the only difference between the gaskets was whether they had a thick or thin front part of the seal. Now I see a mention of 1 or 2 piece rear main seal.
Im in the UK so want to order the correct part first time if at all possible. Im also suffereing with back issues at the moment so it makes crawling around under the old girl a little difficult but I will if more info is required. Looking for any advice.
My research so far has led me to the following part numbers.
1881, 1886, OS34500R and OS34510T. Am I at least on the right track?

Appreciate any and all help.

  MS 96679 vs MS 96679-1
Posted by: Jour Hadique - 11-30-2017, 03:18 AM - Forum: Exhaust Gaskets - Replies (1)

Is there any difference between 96679 and 96679-1 exhaust manifold gaskets other than one kit having 8 and the other 10? They’re otherwise interchangeable, right?

  Carburetor Base Gasket
Posted by: Joe - 11-29-2017, 01:09 AM - Forum: Fuel System Gaskets - Replies (3)

Hi.  I have a 1931 Willys Whippet 4 cylinder (96A) that I need to fabricate the carburetor base gasket and am not sure if the Karropak material is the correct material to use.  This carburetor is an updraft carburetor that mounts to the manifold.  I believe 1/32" should do the trick.  Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

  Gasoline Gasket
Posted by: Jason - 11-27-2017, 08:47 PM - Forum: Fuel System Gaskets - Replies (1)

I am in desperate need of a gasket that is to be used in a gasoline application. Buna- N previously used disintegrated after a short while. I am assuming that this has to do with the additives added. The thickness I am looking for is 3/32 inch.
