Hey all,
Quick question when installing your head would you use anything on the Head gasket such as Copper Coat?
I have used things like that in the past on Chevy, Ford and Honda Small blocks.
My good bud said go dry. I just wanted to get some more input.

You can if you want but copper spray was for mls (multi layer steel) gaskets. It was cheap insurance for people who didn't get the head and/or block surfaced because it could kind of sometimes seal a minor imperfection in flatness.
