    [​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.
