I just bought some Windsor Jr heads and they have O-ring grooves cut in them. What head gasket do I need to use?

If you don't use o-rings in the block, you can use any gaskets you like. The grooves in the heads are teh reciever grooves.
My choice as always is the Victor Reintz 3428SG.

Thanks Alex. Are Fel-Pros ok? That's the only kind I've ever used.

OH NO! Not the 'F' word
I use Fel-Pro on just about everything except the head gaskets. Don't do it for an iron block/aluminum head combo

I'm way too cheap for aluminum heads. These are Jr cast iron......

I am not a fan of the Fel-Pro head gasket so let you consience be your guide. I use their products on most every other place in the engine, but the heads.
Victor Reintz is my choice for most SBF applications.
