Does anyone know if the Mahle VS50208 Valve Cover Gasket has the steel insert all the way around? If not, does anyone know where to get the full metal insert valve cover gasket? I know Bo sells them but I'm exploring my options on different costs.

Get the blue Motorcraft Ranger 2.3 gasket. P/N F57Z-6584-A if it is still available. Best gasket you can use. Mine has been on for 20 years / over 100K miles. Zero leaks. Not even a seep. It is also resuable.

Thank you Jeff, I did some more searching after the first post and ordered the F57Z-6584-A valve cover gasket. It appears to be available through several genuine ford parts dealers.
