- 4.00" standard bore competition gasket for cast iron or aluminum heads on 302 and 351W production blocks. Features solid metallic core with wire encased combustion chamber seal. Surfaces are PTFE coated.
NOTE: Several different water hole patterns have been used on 302 and 351W Ford Racing cylinder blocks and heads since their introduction. Engine assemblers should lay the head gasket on the block and the cylinder head (with front of gasket toward the front of the engine) to make sure there is a path for coolant flow from the block into the head. In some cases, holes may have to be drilled in the block or head, or punched in the gasket.
Ford Racing performance cylinder head gaskets minimize blowout and have a wire-ring combustion seat for extra sealing around combustion chambers. Ford Racing performance cylinder head gaskets are available with either steel-core laminate construction for cast iron heads, or graphite cores with a pre-flattened steel-wire ring, so they won't brinell aluminum heads.
WARNING: Motor vehicles contain fuel, oils and fluids, battery posts, terminals and related accessories which contain lead and lead compounds and other chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects and other reproductive harm. These chemicals are found in vehicles, vehicle parts and accessories, both new and as replacements. When being serviced, these vehicles generate used oil, waste fluids, grease, fumes and particulates, all known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects, and reproductive harm.
WARNING: Some dust created by power sanding, sawing, grinding, drilling, and other construction activities contains chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm. Some examples of these chemicals are: lead from lead-based paints, crystalline silica from bricks and cement and other masonry products, and arsenic and chromium from chemically treated lumber. Your risk from exposure to these chemicals varies, depending on how often you do this type of work. To reduce your exposure, work in a well-ventilated area and with approved safety equipment, such as dust masks that are specially designed to filter out microscopic particles.
