intake gasket

I am installing an serpentine system on an older 350 that did not have one. I had the extra bolt drilled so the brackets fit. Here is my question.... Do I have to get the gasket for a serpentine system because of the reverse rotation of the water pump. By this I mean the cut outs for the water pockets are sealed, do I need to get gaskets that are opened?

Thanks, John

Re: intake gasket

Closed off would be defeating the purpose. Of course you want them open.

Re: intake gasket

Hold on just a minute, I read your post wrong. I thought you were talking about water pump gaskets.

I see now you are talking about intake gaskets. What heads and intake are you running?

Re: intake gasket

That's OK, The heads are stock and the intake is a Edelbrock 4 bbl. I can get you the type later if you need it.

Re: intake gasket

The serpentine system has nothing to do with the intake gaskets. However, You do need a reverse rotation water pump for a serpentine system
