Head Gasket

Post by RMAC » Fri May 17, 2019 8:46 pm

I need to replace the head gasket on my 1966 450 and was wondering which one to use, the fiber composite type one sold by John Deere (R98461)or the Maxi Force steel type (TR98461) ?

I'd go with the original gasket from JD. I'd also have the surface checked for warpage/distortion.
