head to block gasket mismatch!!

Hi, ive noticed that the head gasket, be it genuine or spurious matches up fine with the block but the water passages at the top of the heads do not as the holes are bigger/longer than the sealed hole on the gasket so how does it seal correctly? i dont see how it can!!!

Re: head to block gasket mismatch!!

When I did the head gasket onthe two 8v's the water chanels on the top of the block were completely blocked. I opened them up one one and left them alone on the other engine, both were ok so maybe if there is gasket around the edges they'll be ok...
