: 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...
