Product Description

Ford/Mercury 239 Flathead COPPER Cylinder Head Gasket Pair/2 BEST 1939-48*

Another great vintage listing from Falcon Classic! This listing is for two (2) BEST Gasket copper cylinder head gaskets for 1939-48 Ford and Mercury passenger car models and 1941-47 Ford truck models using the 239ci flathead V-8 engine with front mounted distributor. P/N (2) 515C; head gasket bore is 3.44" for "Big Bore" applications.

These gaskets are for the early-design 239ci engines which have the distributor driven directly off the forward end of the camshaft; compared to the late-design where the distributor is at a perpendicular angle to the camshaft.

BEST Gasket is the leading name in sealing performance in the restoration industry. Image shown is an actual factory supplied picture showing set contents.

Best copper cylinder head gaskets consist of two outer sheets of a generously thick .010" copper and a low-density graphite “filler” sheet. This high-quality graphite sheet is superior to asbestos, which was used in the old days, and far superior to the non-asbestos materials found in other manufacturers' modern copper head gaskets. Excellent torque retention is achieved by using superior materials. Best copper gaskets are definitely “old-school” but with a modern flair for better performance. They are such works of art, we almost hate to sell them!

FALCON TECH NOTE: When installing a Best copper head gasket, use a spray-on sealant like K&W Copper Coat or Permatex Copper Spray-A-Gasket and always re-torque; no short-cuts.
