Thanks for excellent information on this head gasket replacement on a 1971 1750 Spider.

I just have a question for clarification. Are the split dowel pin installations in the six block oil feed holes a subsequent factory modification or owner’s realized good idea? My block does not have pins. My Federal Mogul head gasket has enclosed six round section o-rings. To install pins or not install pins .......

Yes on the pins, no on the supplied Round section O-rings. Use square cut double seal O-rings, you can purchase them from Spruell Motorsport or McMaster Carr.

You do not want the typical split pins. You want the ones that are rolled.
