Re: copper head gaskets

ACL make them up...You need to O ring heads or block...Then compound on each surface.....Stud head bolts.....Colder plugs...
250's have rather low compression..... .060 should be enough decomp...

Don't be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the Ark...Professionals built the Titanic!
