  • Q:

    I just received this from you, and opened it to install the cylinder head. There are no directions. Do I need gasket sealer, I've heard that you dont use sealer with Felpro gaskets. The manual says to orient the gasket so that the identification marks are toward the cylinder head, I dont see anything, no writing, no marks. Can you help?
