Default Re: Copper head gasket or best Kevlar?

Back in the '50s I did a LOT of work on flathead V8s, the available head gaskets were either copper clad or steel clad. We always used the copper clad ones with no sealer and never had a problem. You have to be sure that both the head and the block are perfectly clean and that the gasket is installed w/the proper side up.
