The workshop manual for replacing the head on a 3.8 E-Type Engine states that one side of the gasket is marked “top” and this side should face up. I can find no such marking on either the old or the very expensive new head gasket. Are the new gaskets reciprocal?
All I can think of is the verse:
Poor little upside down cake
Troubles you’ve got 'em
Because your top is on your bottom.
