OK I guess I didn't pay enough attention. Those short rubber pieces that go on the ends of the intake, does the flange go to the inside? It'* hard to tell in the pics I"ve seen. It doesn't look right if they go to the outside. Not much of the piece is on the rail.

Are you talking about the rubber seal that goes across the block between the heads?

Look close, you should be able to see how it goes on. I'll look to see if I have a better picture.

Yes. The pins go in the holes so the bend flange goes down. And it appears that flange goes inside the crankcase right? If I put it outside, not much rubber covers the rail and it doesn't look right. Stupid me for not paying close attention to the old ones.
