Sealer on Head Gaskets
I am about to install iron vortec heads on my 350 using Felpro 7733PT2 gaskets.
Do I need to apply sealer to these? The general instructions that were included say to install fiber faced head gaskets dry but how do I know if these are fiber faced?! They're blue, so is the blue material the fiber coating?
Does block deck surface finish dictate the need for sealer regardless of gasket type?
I have Permatex Copper Hi-Temp Sealant in case I do need to use it.
