390 Exhast manifold.

Do you use a Exhuast manifold gasket on the S/code 390? If so were can I find one?

Do not use exhaust manifold gaskets on any early Ford engines. They were machined to seal and it is important because metal to metal dissipates the heat out of the manifold.
Other wise in time cracks may develop.

Shouldn't be. Been running coated OEM exhaust manifolds on my S code convertible for years with no problems.
