I think that when the Model T came out in 1908 it was one of the few cars to use a detachable cylinder head.
Having just installed a new gasket on a 1932 Packard, I wonder. . . .
What were early head gaskets like? Were they just a sheet of copper? Did they use any sealant? Were early head gaskets leaky?
I'm pretty sure the early head gaskets were not a lot different from those that followed, thin copper sheet with a layer of asbestos between. Likely that gasket form predated internal combustion engines, being used around steam.
What model is your Packard Luke ?
Wasn't Ford the first to have a detachable head. (The car not the man.)
Not sure about the head, but it was the first production car to have the block and crankcase as one piece.
