those won't work, there for the newer V8's. the 287/327 AMC V8's are known as the Rambler V8's, and totally diffrent engines, and hard to get parts for...

but www.kennedyamerican.com or http://www.ramblerparts.com/ will have the gaskets, and many other parts

Doug Galvin's AMC and Rambler Parts, on Internet.

John's Auto Salvage, Seguin Tx (just east of San Antonio, Tx), phone number on Internet, also has Rambler V8 and quite a few Rambler cars and AMCs... stacked up three high, in rows...

Hunt around on the Internet, look up "AMC Junkyard List". -Should be able to find a local source near you. Check mid-sixties full size Jeeps in junkyards also.

I disagree with Matt's opinion that the Rambler V8 is hard to get parts for; NAPA Auto Parts has many parts for it, such as normal parts that need to replaced every now and then such as water pump etc. Like any classic or antique car, it's just a matter of finding the right sources, but then it's no problem.(my website is <amcramblermarlin.colony.com>

"Kanter's" offers lots of goodies. "Hemming's Motor News" probably has leads too.

My local True Value hardware has thick cork on a roll that is 12" x 36". Cuts easy with a razor knife and just punch some holes with a hole punch or a piece of gas steel line.

the only reason I said that parts were hard to get, is because it's harder to get them than a not so unique engine... I did check napaonline b4 posting and also rockauto and they both do not list valve cover gaskets for the 287/327... tho Napa still may be able to get them, but it's not going to be in there computer.
