The gasket matches perfect, it's the header

Response to Re: Interesting findings on Hedman 4x4 headers

My gaskets match the heads, and I have both Hedman and Hooker truck gaskets here, same thing, it's the headers that are slightly higher. In fact, if I flip the gaket upside down, the D2 gaskets are a closer match to the header

It's not a lot, less than an 1/8 of an inch and I never had a leak, but it it very close to not holding a gasket on one tube due to slight manufacturing difference at the weld ring
