I've had my new Bird for about 2 months now and i've noticed a consistent trend w/ problems involving the timing chain cover leaking. Well i noticed on mine that my gasket is not only an oversized fit, but it is also BLUE. Did Ford put oversized blue gaskets for these, or can i assume that this was a replacement before i bought the car?

when i replaced mine the new one was blue. the old was not, so i'd say someone has replaced it. obviously they didn't do it correctly.

is it a blue metal gasket? the old one should have been a paper gasket.

Initial thought was a blue paper gasket. I'll confirm tommorrow morning. I just didn't think that Ford put out OE "blue" gaskets anywhere. Every ford gasket i've ever replaced has all been that cheap dark gray paper crap!
