  1262s3 heat crossover
Posted by: Pete - 02-15-2018, 01:21 AM - Forum: Performance Intake Manifold Gaskets - Replies (1)

I got the felpro 1262s3 gaskets for my application. I was wondering what the best method would be to make an opening for the heat crossover and how to seal this new opening?

Combo is modified tw170 heads (larger ports) with weiand stealth intake if that helps

No instructions were included with the 45166 gasket kit.
I looked on line and could not find it either.
Am I looking in the wrong place? Could you send me instructions?
I'm working on a 67' 400 out of a GTO. Thank you!

I have a Fel Pro PS 5130 push rod cork gasket to be assemble on a 1961 Chevrolet Biscayne 235 cu inch straight 6 cylinder engine. Do I assemble it dry or do I use Permatex #2 non-hardening gasket sealer on the flange surfaces and both sides of the gasket?

Bought a OS 34509 T oil pan gasket at Advance Auto and it was defective--large piece missing from rear seal. Was told couldn't return since opened. Went to another automotive store (O'Reilly's) and made them open the box before paying--has even a larger defect in the rear seal--they agreed unuseable. Called a third automotitve supply (NAPA) and they told me they wouldn't open the box.

Don't you inspect your products before they are shipped out--obviously not. I have filed a complaint with your company.

I need the correct part number for an intake manifold gasket kit for a 2006 Lexus GS 300 with a 3.0 engine. Part # MS97084 is not correct. The upper intake o ring are not 3 separate pieces but 1 piece.
I found a gasket maker called Ishmo Stone part #W1779951 that looks correct. Can you help me find the correct fel pro number?

  rebuild gasket set
Posted by: Bud - 02-08-2018, 05:19 AM - Forum: Head Gaskets - Replies (1)

Hello guys,  I am freshening up a 67 ford FE390 engine. It looks to have very low mileage on it as it is a standard bore with standard crank and no ridge in the cylinders and still showing the hone marks in the cylinders. It has had a valve job in the past but looks like new there too.
   Question for you is when I took it apart I couldn't tell what brand of head gaskets it had on it. The last time I rebuilt an engine was about 15 years ago and I used a FelPro rebuild set and it came with the blue Printo Seal head gaskets. Just wondering if you make a rebuild set with the 1020s in it or if I have to buy a separate set. 
    Thanks in advance for your response.   Bud

  1966 Mustang 289 Carburetor Gasket
Posted by: Million mile Mustang - 02-07-2018, 05:56 PM - Forum: Fuel System Gaskets - Replies (3)

QUESTION: Why is the carburetor gasket (Fel Pro 60059) for a 1966 Mustang 289 (Autolite 4100) a "spreadbore" gasket with unequal hole sizes in the gasket when the Autolite 4100 is a squarebore carburetor with equal bore sizes?

I have a 1,000,000+ mile 1966 289 4bbl Mustang. It was on the cover of Mustang Monthly in April 2017 for having hit 1,000,000 miles. It's my daily driver and the car I drove in high school. It still gets 20k miles per year or more. On 12/15/2017 I replaced the entire engine with a stock rebuilt 289 that I had waiting in my garage to go in once I hit the one million mile mark. It has a restored Autolite 4100 on top.

But I couldn't tune out a slightly rough curb idle. The roughness disappears once the car gets more gas and gets up to speed. Possible small vacuum leak? Carburetor cleaner spraying at the carb base gave me a slight indication that there might be a leak there (ever so slight slight increase in RPM, but not major). So, I removed the carburetor and started to inspect surfaces and the gasket for problems. The surfaces of the intake manifold, spacer, and carb base are all true and flat with no warp. The gaskets were intact. This brings me to my question.

What I noticed is that the carburetor gasket (Fel Pro 60059) has different bore sizes. The secondary side has larger holes than the primary holes. But the Autolite 4100 is a squarebore carburetor with equal bore sizes. Fel Pro says this is the correct carburetor gasket for the 1966 289 (non-hipo). Summit sells it as the correct gasket. Scott Drake Enterprises (the premiere Mustang parts manufacturer) sells the Fel Pro 60059 under their label as the correct Autolite 4100 gasket for a 1966 289. So, everybody seems to think this is the correct gasket. To be honest, I don't know.

So, does it matter that the Fel Pro 60059 gasket has larger holes on the secondary side when the Autolite 4100 itself has equal bore size on all 4 barrels? The smaller primary holes on the Fel Pro 60059 gasket fit like they should against the base of the carburetor (at east by my eye), but the larger secondary holes in the gasket look too big against the base of the carb and don't look like they will seal against the secondary holes. 

Final note, I called the Fel Pro technical support line and was told that the 60059 gasket is correct, that it doesn't matter if it seals fully around the bores, and that the only place where sealing is important on the carburetor is all along the outer perimeter of the base.

So, does it matter?

Photo LT1 oil filter adapter gasket & o-ring?
Posted by: tony - 02-07-2018, 05:48 PM - Forum: Oil Pan Gaskets - Replies (3)

1996 Buick Roadmaster 5.7 LT1 engine with oil filter adapter & oil cooler.

OS34500R comes with 2 different o-rings, and gaskets.
Wondering which one(s) are the "correct" one(s).
See pic...

[Image: A5SQ44]

Rumor has it that the flat/square edge o-ring is for the LT1 that does not have oil cooler lines on the oil filter adapter.
Again curious on which ones in the package are the correct ones for the LT1 w/ oil filter adapter.

  1094 with sealant
Posted by: Michael - 02-06-2018, 06:56 AM - Forum: Performance Head Gaskets - Replies (1)

I have a crate 350 motor and am going to new 64cc aluminum heads. I have sanded my block deck to 400 grit on sheet of glass, so it is pretty smooth and straight. I have not sanded every imperfection out, I have one or two small spots of corrosion on each deck surface. They are less than 1/4'' in size and barely enough to catch my fingernail. 
I purchased gaskets 1094 to get the most compression I could, and in the instructions it states that if the "surfaces are not Ra 55 or has gouges across the surface, a sealer must be applied to both side of the gasket." 
I know these gaskets come pre coated from reading about them, and everywhere I've read also said to not use sealer on 1094s.
Do you think I should use a sealer of some kind, and if so, what?
Thank you for a great helpful site.

  215 Oldsmobile head gasket
Posted by: Eric - 02-06-2018, 02:09 AM - Forum: Head Gaskets - Replies (1)

The 215 Oldsmobile head gasket has a fiber side and a metal side with no markings to what side is up. Wondering what side is up and what the compressed thickness is? Should this be installed dry?
