Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2017: 3 in 1 manifold gaskets

I think I may have a manifold leak (hearing aids don't help) and I'm going to replace the gaskets anyway. First time at this and I don't know what I'm doing. I don't know yet if I have a warped manifold but assume it is a bit warped.
If I go for the 3 in 1 gasket set does it have just the two copper gaskets and the 6 gland rings or does it also include the 6 copper crush rings. I noticed in a different thread that the two copper gaskets were described as a flange style and a flat style. What should I order?

I have always had excellent luck with this:

if you find difficulty lining things up you can take tin snips or aircraft snips to nip off a bit of the offending ring and "squish" it a little to accept both block recess and exhaust recess. If you end up finding your exhaust manifold is too warped, the new replacement that is available is a great value and a breeze to install.

These are the best solution I have found for sealing T manifolds. There's an Ebay site for them as well.

I just found the Ebay site is actually Mac's. 31.49 plus shipping. Part #: 16-54564-2

Ebay is same price plus $7.00 shipping. May be cheaper through Ebay if they don't charge tax??

If you want to warp a manifold, that's a good start!

I am curious, Larry. If you use the gaskets and support rings as designed, why exactly would the manifold warp?
