Ben (Bignews1) stopped by today with a new set of Aluminum frame lower intake manifold gaskets he just purchased from our local GM dealer for $59 + tax.
With any luck, this is the solution we have been long awaiting. I hope with these gaskets, a reduced diameter stovepipe, and a sleeved upper, that the average L-36 can be restored to become as reliable and long-lived as its predecessors.
I hope these will fit any Series II engine. Ben bought them for his '97, but they seem to be a perfect fit for my '95 too.
Can't remember these pins.
Do all Series IIs have locating pins on the cylinder heads?
