When using cometic rocker box gasket that goes between the head and the rocker box, which way does the embossed part of the one-piece metal gasket go??? Up or down... or does it even matter? I would call the company, but they are closed and I want to put my engine back together tomorrow. For some reason that I don't know, I ordered the black metal gasket that only has the embossed part on one side.

When I ordered rocker box gaskets (Cometic) for my Ultima I ran into the same thing. I "think" I installed mine with the embossing up. I had many people tell me that they can only go one way correctly but they will go either way. At least they would on my motor.

There is no red embossing on these all-stamped, metal gaskets. The embossing is stamped into the metal without any added neoprene. I already put things back together, but I'll call tomorrow morning and see what Cometic says.

as long as all the holes align,,, and the surfaces are properly cleaned,,, no worries

the metal gaskets are so far ahead of the older ones..
