Small block chevy====I got some steel shim fel pro gaskets .015 thick,,,some people say put copper coat on them,,,,,some say paint them with regular old spray can paint to prevent leaks,,,If i paint them should I put them on with the paint still wet,,,,tacky,,,or dry???
Those .041 thick gaskets seal real good but the thinnnnner ones up the compression and make more horsepower.

I always use the copper spray. Only 5 bucks a can. Directions are on the can.
