Replacing Intake Gaskets on 67' 289

Okay, I am now replacing the intake gaskets. I was planning on using the FelPro kit and it comes with the cork gaskets. I am planning on putting two dots of gasket sealant on each end of the gasket. However, they have small tabs on each and and appear to make it bend upwards a bit. What should I do? And are they supposed to be like this? Thanks. I have intake off and cleaned up and am not at the point where I need to put the gaskets on.

I usually put some sealant both underneath and on top of the little tabs and then squash it down on top of the intake gaskets. You just want to be sure to seal up those four "corners" real good.

That's pretty much what I did. I put sealant on all four corners where those meet.

I am now torquing them down with factory spec. Wish me luck everyone. I am very nervous it might leak on me again. I do not want to do this again anytime soon. Haha. I appreciate the responses!

Awesome Josh!
It looks like it was the drivers side that was leaking. Hopefully, this will solve part of the problem that you were having. So I guess the carburetor and the ignition system are next huh?

Yep. Next I will make sure the carb is hooked up correctly and then probably ignition. Maybe I should just make one thread for all of it?

I like the separate threads because as you fix problems it is easier to follow and see what is what.

I'll just stick to single ones then. I will update you guys when I get it filled up and try to run it. Having ignition issues I think also. But I'm hopeful the massive intake leak was was a lot of my problem lol

Don't forget to check the oil for water too, when I first put mine on it leaked into the oil galley as well as all over the fresh paint on my motor

This might be a stupid question, is the best way to check for water to just drain the oil? I probably need to anyway to put some with zinc in it

You can just pull the dipstick and look for what appears to be milk on the end of it, there will mostly likely be a dab on the end from condensation/ any coolant left in the galley

As far as zinc goes, I went to the local napa and got a bottle of ZDDP (zinc) additive, it was only $6

I don't know that I trust myself to add it on my own. Haha. But I will definitely look into that. Thank you for the advice.
