Hi guys (& gals)... I'll be pulling the engine on my Aspy in a few days... Does anyone know where we can purchase the rear case, exhaust flange gaskets & carburetor "o"-rings from? I've seen the prices for complete kits range anywhere from $86 to $192 US.. Where can I get them for cheap bucks individually? What are all of you doing when you need gaskets & seals? Is anyone using silicone at any locations?

I will be replacing the alternator drive shaft, and want to replaceall the seals & gasketsduring the re-assembly. I did this job years ago on a 84 Interstate, but the gaskets were readily available then and very inexpensive... :clapper:

Brian, did you register on line ? I have tried, but there seems to be no "Country" option for the UK

You can only register with Canada, US Guam etc but when you do you send them an e-mail telling them you want to buy stuff and you live in the UK and they amend this on the order (keep the reference). I was promised that they would be fixing their site to put the other countries in, apparently they only shipped to the USA etc in the beginning but expanded this later on and their site has yet to be updated.

I use silicone as well as a new gasket. Not taking any chances with leaks in hard to get at places. :waving:

Silicone is a good idea. Also you can use grease with new gaskets instead of silicone. The exess greas will dissolve in the engine oil and won't block the oil pump like silicone will. Grease gives a very good seal.

Sometimes the old gaskets can be rejuvinated with petrolatum (petroleum jelly). This works very well, especially on fuel system parts.
