Looking for a head gasket for my 51 A. Found a couple online
one for $70.00 head set with lead washers. The other one has the complete engine set for $75.00 but no lead washers. They said the washers were not needed because the head gasket is an automotive type. Do they mean by automotive not the original copper type? Also should I use the washers are not.
Thanks for any help.

I like to use Hard Thin Steel washers OVER the Lead washer.. Sure keeps the lead from curling over the Flats of the Nut.. Man, that squoze-out Lead can be Sharp..!!

Works well for me..

I always use a knife and trim it away from the nuts to make a clean installation and to keep any extra pieces from falling into the engine.

The lead washers are for lubrication only

Thanks for all the help. Gonna order the gasket set from Jegs and washers from Deere.I kinda believe the washers are meant to keep the nut from digring into the head can't see how they could stop water leak but I could be wrong..

The lead washers act like a seal for the head bolts to keep antifreeze from leaking into the crankcase. Even though the stubs are tight in the block antifreeze can get past the threads of the stud and fill up the stud hole in the head and leak past the nut if no lead washer is used.

Just put the head back on my B, used lead washers and still do not know what purpose they serve. I have never used lead washers in the last 40 years of wrench turning.

Search for Felpro 7744SBX for the head gasket by itself, or HS7744SBX for the set. get the lead washers from Mother Deere. The Deere head gaslet is the same felpro gasket on John Deere cardboard. Most auto parts stores can get you the felPro set for less than you quoted. This gasket will be a steel sheet on one side, and composite on the other.

Just info you may be able to use.
