Default Re: Best way to scuff a clean head

If it's clean and flat you're all set. Put a few Sharpie marks on the head mating surface and you can use sandpaper on a sheet of glass to slide the head on to assure it's flat.
I coat the graphite gasket with a very light rub of wheel bearing grease. Helps when it comes time to change it again. I do this for all gaskets. Also have sprayed water pump and other cork gaskets with PAM cooking spray. Just something I learned along the way while working on flathead V8's. Chap
