Once upon a time I used McCord on everything and have never had a failure.
Now, they are nearly impossible to find. NAPA carries Victor and I'm not
real thrilled about those. I put Victors on a high compression Pontiac
motor with about 150 miles on it and those victor gaskets nearly cost me an
engine. Replaced with McCord and it still has no troubles 10 years later.
AutoZone, which I really don't care much for, carries Fel-Pro. I've used
Fel-Pro in the past and not had troubles. I just don't care much for
AutoZone, although I will buy from there if need be.
What are your opinions on gasket manufacturers (head gaskets, in
particular - for my Suburban)? Dealer had the truck nearly a week, logged
about 30 hours labor, replaced inst. cluster, temp. sender, wires, etc. and
found no difference. They say the only thing that it could be at this point
is the intake gasket or head gasket.
