can 18 mm gaskets be used on 20mm heads?

Got tis truck apart for a buddy. he got the gaskets a year ago by vin V/R to late for returns now. (lost his job a while back) now we have it apart to find the engine was replaced with a ford reman that has 18mm block and 20mm heads. we have 18mm vr gaskets. Can we just put the gaskets on the block then stick the dowels through them?

Honestly I would not put the truck together with those gaskets..

The Ford gaskets will come with stepped dowels

Recently the V/R (B/O) gaskets have been proven to be failures so I would Strongly suggest not NOT use those gaskets and go with OEM gaskets ONLY!!!

The places that sell the gaskets without the studs charge the same amount



The cheapest place I have found OEM gaskets is Tousley Ford

(They sell the bolts included but are still the cheapest)

Dont think you can buy the gaskets without the bolts. Toulsey seems to have the best prices around on stuff.

Luke I am your father. come join the dark force.
Yea its just to bad what Ford did with the 6.0. IMO it can be fixed but shoulda been recalled period. Its not really a terrible engine mechanically its the dammed egr cooler. the heads only lift because of the water intrusion. I worked as a diesel tech at a ford steallership for about 4 months. the pay was so terrible it cost me to show up. I made more money for training. I did a ton of online crap. It dont pay to be a tech for any shops around here any more.
