Product Description


Another great vintage listing from Falcon Classic! This listing is for a BEST Gasket complete/full gasket set for 1939-48 Ford and Mercury passenger car models and 1941-47 Ford truck models with the 239ci flathead V-8 engine with front mounted distributor. P/N RS511G; head gasket bore is 3.295". We offer "big bore" head gaskets for large overbored blocks.

This gasket set is 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. Also to help with identification, the 239ci has a 3.187" standard cylinder bore; compared to the 3.062" standard bore of the 221ci flathead.

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

GraphTite™ cylinder head gaskets consist of Kevlar reinforced graphite facing material mechanically bonded to both sides of a perforated steel core. This modern engineered, high-performance material is rated to a temperature of 1400°-F. Steel fire rings are installed in the combustion chamber areas of the gasket.

GraphTite™ head gaskets have superb sealing characteristics, excellent torque retention, and hold up to the punishment dished out by high-performance engines – high quality all the way. This gasket might be overkill for cruiser engines, but so what... extra performance never hurts!
