O.k. After changing the intake on my 1985 305 V8, I got confused by the HEI dizzy. I have a O-ring AND a gasket in my gasket kit, but I only have a gasket on the dizzy. Is it possible that the O-ring is for another model ?

Thanks :beer:

The V8 gasket set fits many different years. Mine have all been gaskets (327 & 350) Maybe the newer ones use Orings

.which dizzy do you have?
GM HEI on a 305 V8.

i know that on my GM (hei) dizzy, there was an o-ring on the diz shaft.
What year / model is your engine?

If I have the gasket on my dizzy, then it means I don't need the O-ring?


Thanks !!

When I installed it on my 2F, the o ring didn't do the job. I made a gsaket amd e-mailed Performance distributors to see what was the correct answer. They sent me a gasket which will sit on the shelf until the next time I take mine out.

As you have a different engine, not sure if this is apllicable.

o.k. now I know I have the gasket style but, how can you know if you get one used or at the junkyard? There must be a way to see it?? If I have a gasket style dizy , can I use a O-ring style dizzy in my engine?
