Hi everyone,

I'm rebuilding a 4.2 RRC Suffix A engine and have the Metal (Tin) Head Gaskets from AB but I don't know which side is UP or TOP. There are no markings on the Metal gaskets, just the part number... Anyone know which side is UP?

Thanks.

I happen to have few of those metal ones around. I prefer the composite ones myself. Anyway I had a look. I have 4, 2 have no markings (aftermarket), but two have rover and top stamped in them. The top is the side where the groves are pushed down from (the bottom has the groves pushed out).

Little confusing so I made a quick picture

Thank you! Just what I was looking for.

I was going to go with the composite on this engine but did not for the following reasons:

It's an engine I am going to sell and wanted to keep it to spec, and
I had the heads refinished and did not tell the engine shop to shave the heads to allow for the composite gaskets

My current RRC LWB does have the composite gaskets with shaved heads.

Thanks again and stay healthy!
