64 Intake Gasket Installation

Bill,

I have purchased a 64 Continental that is missing a few parts including the intake manifold. I am trying to put an intake on it but am not sure about the way to put the gaskets on. The new gaskets have 2 open coolant passages and 2 restricted passages. The gaskets can go either way to restrict the front or rear passages in the heads. There are no markings on the gaskets to indicate which way they go and my service manual just says to install them with the word front on the gasket to the front of the engine. Do you know the correct direction to install them ?

Thank You,

Steve

Hi Steve -

Our gasket set indicates that the front portion is the restricted section therefore the blocked off part on your gaskets should be to the FRONT of the engine. Please see attached photo. Hope that this helps.

Sincerely,

Bill
