Re: Head Gasket for Little M
Bill, I wasn't going to open any hole in the gasket unless someone "absolutely" convinced me it needed it, and I wouldn't open it that much if I did. I agree with you, if I did open them up, I'd probably fry my fringin cylinders. This was the info I was looking for, I thought people were really enlarging the holes in the gaskets, seems it's just the holes on the block they were doing. I understand all that now, kind of porting the water ports.
As for Darts recommendation ....... There isn't any I can find. And they didn't brother to chime in on their forum, which surprised me some.
It's too bad I spent $160 on the Mr.Gasket MLS gaskets before I found all this out. They probably would work just fine, but from talking to others & the person I bought the short block from, looks like I'll be going to Fel-Pro MLS #1143.
