Has anyone used those new gaskets? Did you like them?

I've used them on stock engines, but not on any hipo's. They seem to work just as good but were more of pain to put on while under the car.

I'm not a fan of neoprene oil pan or valve cover gaskets.

Felpro makes a one piece oil pan gasket. It's blue (not neoprene) and has those metal things around the bolt holes to prevent over-tightening. I bought one for this latest engine, but haven't got to install it yet... (cost around $40 though)

They, and some other outfit make valve cover gaskets out of the same stuff. It's a fairly tough rubber compound with a steel shim that holds it's shape really well. They are supposed to be almost infinitely re-usable.

They seem to be nice pieces.

Good Luck!

I like cork, too. But I can't seem to avoid cracking the ends and I hate oil leaks.

But a 1/4" drive won't fit my impact gun.

Neoprene or rubber, I don't like either for gaskets that seal oil.
The rubber impregnated cork product that Fel-Pro markets is called Felco-Prene. That's the stuff that their racing gaskets are made from.
I use their 5/16 laminated valve cover gaskets with great results.
Actually I used Fel-Pro for just about everything except header and head gaskets.
Victor Reintz or Cometic for head and Mr.Gasket for headers when I use them at all.
