I ordered these because they are exactly like the ones I took off my son's 1979 Brat (engine stamp 12/78).  When I received them I was excited because they appeared perfect, then I looked at the back and they are 80% metal.  


Does anyone have experience with these or this type pf head gasket?  They look like they are quality gaskets, I just wonder how they will seal since they are mostly metal on the one side.


Your thoughts and expertise will be greatly appreciation.  I guess I'm nervous and want to make sure I only have to do this once.



This side looks fairly normal.




This side has mostly metal.




Do I just put them on with NO sealant and follow the torque specifications?
