I have the FelPro 1020 gasket still in their package. Haven't installed my heads yet. I have a .015 oversize bore 427 S/O which puts me at 4.245". I haven't heard of ROL? Are they a orderable through their site or available at Summit or maybe an auto parts store?

When I removed my old heads with 3000 miles using the FelPro 1020 I noticed the head gasket on one side didn't seem to seat well. One head you could see the blue stuff had kinda melted to the block and head. The other head, which cracked, the same blue stuff didn't melt to the head or block. This same head leaked water all down the side of the block. The crack was on the ouside, between the exhaust ports, of the head which I assume was what leaked on my block. Maybe the gasket was leaking also?
