Questions: I am in process of replacing my M38 head gasket. Before I order new gaskets, I would like to know if there are benefits to buying a copper gasket, the one coming out appears to be aluminum over asbestos. It has been in there 25 years. Thanks, Don

Some people prefer copper of composite. However it is much more costly. I dont have any issues with either sealing.

Questions: Should I use a gasket cement such as permatex type 2 or is it not needed for the copper cylinder head gasket?

Yes, a thin layer of sealant shouldn't hurt. A lot of people don't use it with the copper.
