    I have a low mileage stock 440 turns over with a 1/2" ratchet and socket. Has not been sitting long, just don't want any surprise leaks.
    Looking for a gasket kit to put new seals in it before I drop it in my car.
    New pan, rear main. timing cover,valve cover and what ever other seals I need.
    Any recommendations.
    Thanks
    Ed

    Summit should have a complete Fel-Pro gasket/seal kit.

    If you have the heads off for any reason, Have a machine shop lightly clean up the valve cover gasket
    sealing area. As cast, some can be pretty wavy and be a potential leak! It won't take much.

    The Fel-Pro rebuilder gasket kit should have everything you need...... except I don’t think it comes with the oil pump mounting gasket.
    No valley pan either.

    Take a good look at the valve seats.
    Heads that have spent a lot of time sitting dormant can end up with pretty corroded valves and seats.
    You’ll have the heads apart to change the seals anyway....... just look them over while you’re there.
