It depends on what cooler/case combination you have. A '71 should have
the later style cooler and case which takes the latest seals.
If you have another combination, it depends on what you have.
A case with 8mm oil passages and the cooler has 10mm holes, or
visa/versa, you take the special seals. If you have 8mm case and cooler,
you take the early t-3 seals, that come in the gasket sets.
