263 head gasket


Recommended Posts

I’m not an expert head gasketer. But I question this? , the steel sealer ring in my opinion should seal the head to the sleeve. Again my opinion the pressure of combustion is going to go down the sleeve counter bore entering into the water jacket . Am I wrong? 
Also metal side of the head gasket goes down to block .graphite up . They tell me at Fel pro to use light coat of copper sealer on the metal side only.

It looks good to me as others said compare it to the head I believe the early straight valve sixes used a rounder head gasket compared to a slant valve.

Ok if the other head has a different shape for the gasket, then his fire crate domes need to fit up inside the head or there is a clearance issue there. I ran into this buying a used head which turned out to be from a 656 or 706. A lot going on there.

These engines are dry sleeve, press fit sleeves. So they are not near the water jacket.
