  • Rocker cover gasket question

    The rocker cover gasket I just took off had notches on each side for the bolts on the top side of the engine block. My new gasket doesn’t have these notches. Is it the wrong gasket, do I carefully cut the notches after sticking the gasket to the cover, or do I just tighten it down and have the bolts create the notches?

    If you have a head that uses 10 studs and a bolt or 11 studs, you bought the wrong gasket, but there's no reason you can't cut out the spots you need. The only difference is the notches.
