Default Re: blueprinting not hotrodding

Nolan Speed, I have the slanthead 80 (66) and I also have the 2 aluminum headgaskets on mine. I suspect they're supposed to have 2 gaskets for clearance purposes to make sure the top of the piston (dome shaped on mine, not a flat top) doesn't hit the sparkplug at TDC. However, I haven't tried removing one or both of the gaskets to test this interference theory. It's just an educated guess.
McGyver could fix that with bubble gum.
