I've searched some forums on other sites and most of them agree that the Mr. Gaskets http://www.summitracing.com/parts/MRG-5877/ are the ones to get. The most expensive Moroso's were the worst. When i get my 340 heads (not v4 heads,i repeat Steve,....NOT v4)back from the machine shop next week,i'll post pics to show you what i do to stop leaks in LA heads. In a nutshell...i mix up a bunch of JB weld and fill in the surface of the head where the gasket lays on,then i run a semi-coarse axe file over it to smoothen  the very porous surface. Cheap but effective. The JB weld seems to stand up to the heat well.

I just put the gaskets on and they never leak.  Why do you have so much trouble?
