Exhaust Manifold Gaskets on 5.2L V-8?

Fellas-

I removed my exhaust manifolds today as part of my head gasket replacement project. Imagine my surprise when I discovered there were NO gaskets between the exhaust manifolds and the heads. The head set I bought has replacement exhaust manifold gaskets. What's going on here? Am I crazy?

No, You're not crazy. There is no OEM gasket available. I went through this about 8-10 months ago. I just got the Fel-Pro gaskets and was done with it.

Thanks. Hey, did you re-use your head bolts?

I did my head gasket (among other things) about 2 weeks ago and reused the bolts. Not really by choice--couldn't find replacements and had to get on the road. 1500 miles, and the oil is still at full and the color of cola, so it looks like the heads sealed fine, though I'm going to recheck the torque on the bolts in a couple of days just in case. Anyone have problems reusing the old bolts?
