| : Which side is up when installing the copper asbestos engine head gasket?Is it the folded over edge or the somooth side?In the Model A Ford Mechanics Hanbook it says to place the gasket with the rolled seam bottom down.The Bratton's catalog say the seam around the cylinder hole faces up.I am confused.|
Bratton is right....I called Fel-pro and asked...it is called a metal sandwich gasket and that rolled lip is called a fire ring...the folded side always does go up...
