Are you just about ready to give up on trying to seal the stock steel valve cover on your FF1600 engine? Are your fellow drivers just about ready to report you to the EPA? Gasket Innovations has the answer!
This precision gasket has been designed specifically for the original steel valve cover on the Ford "Kent" pushrod engine. The high-temperature silicone construction allows the gasket to crush -- without extruding outwards -- much more than the stock cork gasket for better sealing. The extended positioning tabs provide better retention than the stock tabs to resist the crankcase pressure and vacuum in dry-sump engines.
Simply clean your valve cover, spread a thin bead of RTV sealant around the flange to hold the gasket in place, and install the gasket. Bolt down your cover and you're ready to go! When it's time to adjust the valves, the gasket will stay with the valve cover. The gasket is reusable indefinitely, which means it could be the last valve cover gasket you will ever buy! Sold individually.
Fits the original Ford steel valve cover on 1600cc Kent Crossflow pushrod engines (except the Fiesta valve cover). For use with steel valve covers and the Ford Racing aluminum valve cover (Ford Racing part number M-6582-16K). Not for use with Titan or other aluminum valve covers that require a flat paper gasket. Does not fit most Ford industrial engines.
