MAX WEDGE PORT SIZE INTAKE GASKETS
These intake manifold gaskets were especially created to fit EXACTLY the size
and location of the famous MAX WEDGE cylinder heads. Because Indy and B1s copied
the MAX, these fit them perfectly as well.
We chose the finest ARMSTRONG material, known for it’s resistance to
“wicking” when exposed to oil, a problem in the MAX. Then we coated both sides
with a special substance to keep it from sticking and tearing during manifold
removal, hence, with care, they can be re-used.
Next, we offer it in 4 different thicknesses, .015, .030, .045 and .060”.
This is the key. By raising and lowering the manifold until you can run the
screws in by hand easily, you can insure that the ports line up even though you
can’t actually SEE the ports. IF THE BOLT HOLES LINE UP PERFECTLY, SO WILL THE
PORTS! Therefore, having access to various thickness gaskets is the insurance.
Gaskets can also be glued to each other to make other thicknesses, like .075”,
.090”, .105” etc. You never know what you will be working with on these engines
of 45 years old and God knows how many owners and trips to the machine shop. Use
special adhesive, 3M super 77.
Buy them in pairs or save a few bucks as a kit.
