Re: Exhaust gaskets - V8 - Which way??
No problem, if you lay the gaskets over the exhaust manifold in a horizontal
position and play around with them you will soon se there is only a obvious
way however make sure you remember the correct position when the manifold is
nearly bolted up and you are putting in the gaskets and also make sure you
get both bolts through the gasket and not to one side of them, good luck
