Hi Tony,

McCord 5788 is for Stude 8, Models 92 and 93 only, per my 1940 McCord catalog. This is NOT listed in the Studebaker section, but only in the numerical lists at the back of the book (what they call Section B-1).

Victor 954 is Pierce 8, 1936-38, per 1945 Victor Master Catalog. Presumably the steel side goes to the aluminum head. I’d think that gasket would work for aluminum heads even if on earlier block.

Victor 736 is Stude President 8, 1929-32 (1945 Victor catalog).

Our own Parts & Service Directory shows Fitzgerald 911-PA for 1929-35 P-A 8 [iron heads] and 911-PA-DE for 1936-38 [alum heads].

Happy holidays, all!
