The best way to.tell is to clean it up real good and run it until you see a wet spot. Make sure the block vents are working right, because anything will puke oil with positive crankcase pressure.

I’ve done it with the fire ring gaskets. I knew I was pushing my luck when I did, but I never had one let go. I say decide for yourself and own it if it works, or if it don’t.

I ordered it from a guy in Kentucky that I won’t deal with again, nor would I encourage anyone else to. It’s a clone rod journal and flywheel taper, so I think it should be relatively easy to find.
