Gasket

I'm replacing an exhaust manifold gasket. Does it make a difference which side goes against the block? The gasket has different textures on opposite sides. Any suggestions here?

I sure don't know. Does the angled notches match the block or manifold?
If all else fails, call Vince at Skidim in the morning.

I'll bet a beer, it dosent matter.

Thanks Denny. I'm with you I wouldn't see how it would matter but I'm not sure. Maybe JimN or someone knows?

It probably won't matter, but you can put it on with the metalized surface toward the head.

Brian, put the two outside bolts in first, then slide the gasket down over the two outside bolts then insert the rest of the bolts... If you already knew this then disregard this note.....

I'll vote with JimN. I think the metal side will be more heat resistant....that's a pretty hot blast of exhaust coming out of the cylinder head.
