Chevrolet Vovo Penta: I have a 1996 chevy 350 marine application.

Customer Question

I have a 1996 chevy 350 marine application. I have a felpro marine gasket set. The set came with 8 plastic umbrella type seals, 8 rubber seals, and 16 o rings.When taking the springs off I only see an o ring on the exhaust valve. There are no plastic seals on the exhaust vales, jus o rings. Can you tell me if the exhaust valve gets a plastic seal as well as the o ring? Or is the plastic seal for a different application?

Hi, My name is ***** ***** for the delay.I will do my best to assist youit is for a different application,,yours has the oem o-rings...but i always like to install unbrella type seals on all 16 valves
Expert:  Tim's Auto Repair replied 1 year ago.
you can buy the umbrella valve seals separate..i like using them on a worn engine just because it may deter some oil from going though the valve guide...if the engine has tight valve guides,the 0-rings will be finethanksIf you are satisfied with my answer, Please Rate my answer by clicking the rating button so I can get credit for my work.
