    This may be simple for you guys but I build older stuff and this looks funny to me. I'm assembling my 5.0 and have a set of Felpro 1250 intake gaskets. There is a little piece on each end that doesn't look right. Can someone explain this to me? Should I trim it off? Here's a picture and the area in question is in the red circle.

    Found this on another mustang site ...

    I've never used those, I prefer the rubber end kits rather than the cork.

    Instructions? These came in a Ford Racing gasket set, no instructions. But now I do remember the 351 does have that.

    Thanks guys, better to ask and make sure than blow an engine and look stupid, right?
