I used the Ultra Copper. After searching threads on how to install a gasket, it seems like I shouldnt have put gasket maker all around the head surface, just on the gasket area covered. Should I start over or does this look ok? Also, I let the gasket and ultra copper sit for a couple of days, its actually been sitting for about a week uncovered in the garage. should I just start fresh and follow the instructions in the threads, or will this be ok? Do you guys use teflon tape on your oil pressure gauge adapter?

IMHO I would not use all the material on the heads but I would definately use it on the valley ends with the rubber gasket on top of the material. NO tape on fittings. If any gets into the oil system, well do I need to say more?

When you use the rubber gaskets on the ends, do you let the gasket maker and gaskets dry first? Most posts said they just run a 1/4" x 3/8" bead of gasket maker. I tried using the rubber gaskets and they kept sliding into or out of the seam
