Default Remflex Manifold Gasket

The 40 I sold recently needs a new intake/exhaust manifold gasket and it seems Remflex is the choice of many. Do the F and 2F use the same gasket? Remflex website shows one part # for both engines while SOR, where they are on sale, lists the gasket for only the F. SOR doesn't list the Remflex part # but I suppose I should simply trust the Remflex info but thought I'd ask for the collective wisdom here.
Thanks

Steve, same gasket will work on either. I have some engine gaskets that I've collected over the years and can check to see if I have an intake/manifold for you. If you do go with remflex, take care to not over torque it.

Thanks for the input and offer, Ricardo - good to see you still on the ball here, even though it appears that you have made good on your threat to sell your 40. Been reading related threads here and on Mud and proper torque on the Remflex is crucial and surfacing the manifolds does too as an old single piece aftermarket header is what I'll be dealing with. I'm guessing that the header was installed nearly 30 years ago so it isn't a surprise that the current gasket blew out after the new owner took a nearly 2000 mile trip over the Memorial Day weekend! Jan says that as soon as the gasket is fixed, she's ready for another trip.

I ordered mine from remflex direct and haven't had any issues on my 2f.

I have a Felpro on the shelf and I used a copper gasket spray/material with no leaks...
