    Exhaust manifold to head gaskets

    I know they did not have a gasket from the factory. But, The gaskets i have are way too big in the port area. There would only be a tiny area of gasket between the flange and the head surface. These came with the complete kit i bought from 440 source. What are you guys using for gaskets?

    Are main bearings made in matched pairs?

    Thanks for the answers . It's been 20 years since i have assembled a car engine. I've been concentrating on 2 stroke snowmobile engines. They have a lot fewer parts to keep track of.

    Are main bearings made in matched pairs?

    I am putting my 505 together and did not unpackage the bearing myself. The machine shop gave them to me in the factory package. The project has sat a couple of years and been moved around in my shop. I am unsure if the shells got mixed up or not. Should i be concerned?

    67 R/T 440 air cleaner

    My dad purchased his first RT new in 67. It was an automatic car. His came without snorkels . He has pictures from back then. From what we have seen, and heard it seems to be random (maybe a supplier issue early on?) It would be cool to find out the actual reason .

With the cam gear installed it rotates fairly easily but does not "freewheel" . Is that acceptable? Thanks in...
