Quality product

June 01, 2016
I am using it to replacing the blown head gasket on my 1934 Ford 5 window coupe street rod. Have not gotten it installed as yet but a trial fit shows it fits great. I'll tell you more later after I get installed and the engine started. I appreciate the helpful instructions included with the gasket set and will follow them to the "T".
Pros:
  • Was Good Quality
  • Fit Perfectly
Cons:
  • Can't Find Anything Bad
Yes, I recommend this product.

If you are putting the early heads on a 49-53 8BA you would use the early gaskets like you referenced. On the rear there is a port that should be opened up a little and on the front there is a port on the block that needs to be blocked. The gasket will indicate which one. If you web search the 8BA head swap it will give the exact specifications.
