For the gasket, I bought the Fel Pro gasket w/heat shield.
This is the next big thing I have to do on this truck - it will be a challenge, but I think it's going to work out great. Good luck to you, too.
Good luck with your leak.
Hopefully your's isn't as involved as mine was. On my truck, both the mating surfaces on the manifold and heads had some deep rust pitting. On top of that, all the surfaces had a C-shaped arc to them. Ended up having the heads pulled, machined and refurbished. On the bright side, I have hardened exhaust seats now, new guides, seals, one new valve, etc. so the heads should be in good shape.
Sure is nice to have the leak fixed finally.
