Speedy Bills Tech Tip about starting flathead w alim heads Bills tech tip says to start the engine dry , no water or antifreeze.My engine mechanic has never heard of this and questions why this should be done. Why not start with water or coolant, warm and then let it cool down and torque to 45lbs.

Initial starting of a Flathead engine dry allows the aluminum heads to expand evenly until warm and then cool evenly to keep them from distorting before final torque sequence.

Tech Support
INSTALLING HEAD GASKETS: Spray paint each side of the head gasket with a heavy coat of hi- temperature aluminum spray paint Part# 704-12002. This paint will be acting as a sealer. Put the gasket over the studs carefully. Avoid bending or tearing the gasket.

Yes these copper gaskets are recommended for use with aluminum heads. We do not recommend using anything but copper gaskets on a flathead that has aluminum heads.
