AMC 360 Intake Manifold gasket w/aluminum intake
Black Betty (AMC 360) has a seeping oil leak fore and aft at the Edelbrock aluminum intake manifold. Mindful of the hatchet job the P.O. did on other elements of this old CJ I'm dubious.
Back in the days I ran SBC's in my old Malibu I recall that the Edelbrock manifolds would leak terribly unless, when installing one discarded the rear seal and used a bead of Blue RTV in it's place.
1. Is this the nature of Edelbrock manifolds? or just of Chevy small blocks?
Went down to our local NAPA and they pulled a NAPA made by Fel Pro MS96011 intake gasket manifold and this thing had a windage tray incorporated into it. In addition, the specification called for an Edelbrock 7213 to be used with this Fel Pro gasket. Taking the number down and doing a google search I found that the Edelbrock 7231 is just the intake runner manifold gasket.
2. How are these two items incorporated together on the AMC 360?
The parts shop that stocks part for Skylab II will not have parts for our year/model of Jeep
We cannot accurately judge the trajectory of a speeding critter (cat, dog, sasquatch)
Record heat waves and floods only occur when we visit that area
