I just got the 1320 header & would like to replace both the head gasket & exhaust gasket.
1320 has the set for $19.95, but they only take Paypal now, which I dont have.
Can anyone point me in a direction to get a good high performance gasket set?
Are the stock Polaris items reasonable & any good?

IMO the 1320 gaskets are as good as it gets and afford the greatest coverage since they are the exact shape of their header flange .....

You shouldn't have to sign up for PayPal to checkout on their site, they use the PayPal cart system so you should be able to use a CC directly ...

If not Cycle Springs also carries the same gaskets and offers either PayPal checkout as well as direct CC payment ....

Got mine yesterday from my dealer. $12.50. Works great.
Tried Autozone first. Took 15 min. to convince the kid that Polatis made Polaris. He insisted Dodge owned it and that the engine wasn't from GM. Had the same issue with them a couple years ago when I needed a radiator hose for a '63 Jeep Cherokee with a Jeep 327 Bombadier engine and a couple years before that when I needed a fuel pump for a '67 Corvair. They insisted it was a Chrysler and I had to show them the engine because they didn't believe it was in the back. Kids don't know anything about the vehicles if it's not in their parts computer.

You guys are too much.
Thank you again.

I'm getting ready to change my header to a 1320, my current gasket looks ok, and actually they are doubled up, but unsure about reusing them. Anyone have problems reusing them or is it better to just replace them?

I've learned the hard way that gaskets should be replaced any time a part is disassembled.
Too many times, I've had to take it apart again just replaceto the gasket for a leak.

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure! $12.00 don't cheap out.
