Rock,
They look great. Ok I will ask a couple questions. I am assuming these are various materials for head gaskets? What are the materials and are these improved materials for sealing the heads? Materials and details?? No I dont have one of these engines (yet) just like the details.
Regards,
Chris

No Sir, just a gasket to seal the pressure test plates for testing the early 21 Stud V8’s. I wanted something that is “somewhat” reusable and repeatedly gonna seal so I figured at 40 to 45 psi torque and pressurizing the block to 40 psi won’t hardly effect the durometer of the neoprene and should consistently seal for awhile to come!!
