I have a 1929 Model A coupe. My copper manifold gaskets blew and needs to be replaced. It was brought to my attention that I didn't do it right the first time so I am doing this again and want to do it right this time. I am getting conflicting things to do. I had a friend tell me not to use the Indian Head shellac on the manifold gaskets because it gets too hot and will blow plus you don't use shellac on copper gaskets but in my Model A for the restorer book says that I should use shellac on the manifold gaskets. I also can't find if there is a certain torque to use when tightening the manifold down. I really need to know what is the best method before I mess up again. All thoughts are welcome
