Post 351c thing?

Hi guys,right i"ve got this ranchero 1971,first v8 ford i"ve ever had(i"m into chevys)Anyhow i ordered a edelbrock inlet manifold + holley 600vcfor it.I took the old cast manifold off to get the job ready for when my new gear arrives ok.
now the old inlet manifold gasket is like a thin steel tray,is this factory ? It"s got me wondering,because when i ordered the new edelbrock inlet i said to the bloke "does it come with new gaskets,or do i have to order them,He said he"ll have a look + if not he"ll throw in some?" QUESTION IS "do i need the tray type or will the long thin 4 port&gt;&gt;one each side do the job? H.K. your brain rreQ....phil <img src="confused.gif" border="0">

Yes...It was factory installation on the Cleveland. It keeps oil from splashing out of the lifter valley and hardening on the underside of the intake, causing heat absorbtion into the intake charge.

Are the heads 2V or 4V as the replacement will be different for each one. FEL-PRO is a source for the valley pan gasket.

A regular set will work but oil residue will collect on the underside. If the guy promised this to you...Hold Him To It!

They are fairly expensive.

It's called a valley pan. It's original use was to shield the intake from the hot engine oil from the bottom of the intake. Hopefully this would lower intake charge temps, making more power. The problem is they don't seal very well on modified intakes, Milled heads, or other mods that change the angles of the head in relationship to the blocks deck surface. Use the "4 hole, one for each side" gasket. It's easier and you'll be happier with it in the long run. If you get worried about the intake charge temps than you can coat the bottom of the intake with silicone gasket maker to help insulate the manfold runners but make SURE that its COMPLETELY! dry before assembly.

2bbls and 4bbls came with this setup and the regular gaskets seal better than the metal tray. But you should cut the tray part from the intake sealing area and keep the oil baffle plate to keep intake manifold temps down, you can re-use it again and again by just replacinging the gaskets between the heads and manifold.
