Intake Gaskets

I'm having problems finding the correct intake gasket for my Edelbrock 351c-4v LB intake to 351c 2vAussie heads. Seems I can only find 4v gaskets in the high performance category and any 2v gaskets are the stock type. Will the 4v gaskets work ok?

Can anyone tell me a part number that would be applicable to my situation?

thanks

Ron

Re: Intake Gaskets

Ok, I think I've come up with an acceptable solution. Victor (PN 95077SG) seems to fit the bill. Any comments on this?

Also, I noticed that when I put the cork gaskets down on the ends, the intake doesn't make any contact with them. There is still about 1/16" from touching. If I go with an RTV bead, it will have to be about 1/2" thick. Is this acceptable? Seems to me that this might create a problem if a hunk of it separated inside the valley.

Any and all info would be greatly apprecaited.

thanks

Ron

Re: Intake Gaskets

Is this site on slow motion, takes minutes to go anywhere????

I have allways used the 2V Felpro printoseal gaskets with the the blue sealing ring, the number i think is 1240. Never had a problem with them.

And don't worry about the silicone at the ends going into the motor. Just thick bead it right accross in one go, and dropp in the manifold. And when set, just get a pen knife and neatly trim along the manifold edge and it will look good too. Make sure you use a colour that don't stand out and look ugly. With alloy manifolds, i use Loctite Grey Maxx to blend in.
