Dear all,

While dry fitting the head gasket for my 69 351W, I check that the front oil return hole, R/H cylinder bank, is about half covered by the gasket (ref the attached). The other 3 holes look good.
Can't determine if the Print-o-seal bead is in contact with the block or in the oil hole. Gasket is a Fel-Pro 1011-1.

Should I be concerned? Thank you

Ndtorque, thanks for your feedback, puts me a little more at ease. I don't mind trimming gaskets to make them work, not quite so willing with a head gasket...….

Appreciated.
