Hi everyone,  

Can anyone tell me the difference between the Fel Pro 260-4008 & the Fel Pro MS96011 gaskets? 

Also, is there a valley pan gasket that is better than another?

I reckon most of the valley pan gasket are from the same source, seem to recall seeing them with Victor Reinz stamped on one and and Felpro on the other end, others will be the same thing in a different box.
I've finally given up drinking for good...........now I only drink for evil.

When they were available ROL was a repackaged fel-pro.

I really find it odd that FelPro would offer 2 part numbers for the same part.

2604008 is a Sealed Power part number.  MS96011 is a Fel Pro part number. Both companies are owned by Federal Mogul.

I guess they kept both part numbers because they are familiar to enough people that it makes bad business sense to delete a part number. I suspect that actual parts are the same no matter what number you use.

Thanks for the replies. The sealed power thing makes sense now.
