Great! Glad you posted that! Saved me 2 hours of searching/researching in the next week as I order my set!

No problem!
A few years ago I bought one of every kit at the time to do a comparison. I had pictures taken and all of that but never took the time to post it all up. Some of the others use some of the Fel-Pro gaskets in the kit but that one labeled DC took it upon themselves to make their own gaskets. Too bad they do't fit. The rest of the gasket kits are not near as terrible but none have as good of kit as the Fel-Pro one.

Well this one is done now so I will be back on the Stroker by Monday.


81. MM390: '69 390 +.030" over, '73 heads, 268H cam, Edelbrock Performer, and stupid Edelbrock carb. I can't get it adjusted to my liking but it runs and has 2 gallons of gas ran through it plus it had it's first oil change. Should be a stump puller. Ready to go out the door!
