Hey guys I am running a set of Hooker longtubes on my 78 malibu, part number 2550-2hkr. They are nice however do not fit well (kind of expected this) ended up removing the passenger side and messed up the gasket. I am asking if anyone on this board has a set of these gaskets (see pic) this gasket is steel on both sides with a paper layer in the middle.

I called both Hooker and Summit and these exact gaskets are either not available or no longer available. The set that Hooker sells ( 10808HKR ) is not the same. (Paper on outsides with steel in the middle. Primaries are 1/4" smaller as well)

I have a set of Fel Pro's on hand that I will use if I strike out on this attempt but right now I am trying to avoid removing the DS header again. I have had good success with ultra copper on both sides of the gasket and stage 8 locking bolts so that is what i used ...

I don't have what you want, but if you wind up not being able to find them, I use RemFlex header gaskets. They're a couple dollars more than others, but they seem to work very well.

Thanks Yes I have used remflex, also Percy's dead soft. I find they all work well with the use of the locking header bolts
