Which side of the intake gasket goes on the head?

(1/2) > >>

65springtime:
I am about ready to reinstall the intake manifold back on my 289 block. There is a smooth side and the other side of the gasket has the number on it (901031) and is not smooth. It is a Fel-Pro blue gasket. Was told by someone that it does not make a difference but seems like it should. Any help appreciate. Man, I sure miss Soaring. He always had the answers. Thanks, John

TheJ:
My guess would be that the numbers face up but I am not sure.  I will ask a local engine builder what he thinks.

Use to but it's being redone again. . . . . Man I love this stuff. . . . .
