Red face 455 Tin gasket thing

Just wondering. When I built my 455, the intake gasket was this big old tin valley pan type set up.

Why is that? They don't have those in SBC, Y-blocks, and SBF. Those are the only motor I have worked with. Just wondering the reason behind it.

It's there to keep the hot oil of the intake manifold and is a darn good idea to have on every motor. Why the manufacturers never did it on every motor is one of lifes little mysteries. Cost saving?

Thumbs up

i just asked you a question on my baby post, didn't know you were here. it's to keep the hot oil from splashing on the intake manifold to keep it cooler. at least the after market ones for chevy are, but on the 455, isn't the intake well off, ie seperated from the rest of the engine like my 326's like an air-gap? so it's there as a cover, not a gasket. i was wondering if you know of a co. that makes a blower or tunnel ram for the poncho.
