    [​IMG] Hahaha [​IMG] He used "cheapest" & "flathead" in a sentence - together! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Get quality head gaskets - get the one piece front seal - the rest is mostly the same from box to box, so shop if you like, but you won't save much - the money's in the head gaskets anyway.

    Just go to Reds Headers for one stop shopping. The guy knows flatheads inside out. Plus he is fairly close to you.

    In the immortal words of Lindebalm, retired fireman and builder of the Stars and Stripes "T"; member of The Oldies With Goodies, Santa Barbara, Ca. circa 1977: "Don't go cheap."
