Is there a place I can go to for gaskets for my 41 Oldsmobile and my 49 Plymouth? I want to pull the oil pans on both for cars but want to have a set of new gaskets before I start. There are both in line six engines. I heard there's a guy making complete engine sets but can't find his web site.

Have you tried Napa and O'Reilly? Olson wanted $25 for a valve cover gasket for my M Farmall tractor. The Plymouth gasket should be real common. The Olds is a different matter.

Halamicek Auto Supply in Gonzales, Tx will likely have NOS gaskets for both cars.

Here is a tip.
Struggle and strive for a Fel pro part number.Then simply go to Advance and give them that part number.They can order it.
Case in point to explain.A gasket set for a B John Deere is pricy.Even from Temco.
BUT when we got the set from temco,Ooops,it is in a Felpro box.With felpro part numbers for each seperate gasket.
We had a problem and had to repull the head.
We took the head gasket number to Advance,gave it to them and 2 days later had the gasket.MUCH cheaper than John Deere.
A good napa store should be able to help.
I got all the parts for rebuilding my brake system and stuff from advance on my 47 pontiac.
Computer came up with the numbers,plugs,points and such.No reason a gasket cant show up on the puter..

Good idea Mack, I will see if I can locat a felpro number somehow. To my knolage both oil pans have never been off. When I changed the oil on the 41 Olds there was some bulid up on the drian plug so I'm sure the pan has an inch of sluge in it. I pulled the cap off the oilfilter on the 49 I just bought yesterday and the old filter came out in small chunks. So I can just imange what the inside of the oil pan looks like on that also. I was getting a gas smell every time I turned a corner with the 41. Turned the gasket on the sending unit had rotted out and the gas was spilling over that. I think I might have the same problem with the 49. I just need to find the time to drop the tank and find out.

If you guys have trouble locating stuff, I am set up with Napa and Auto Value on my shop computer. I will be glad to give you availability information. PM me a part number or application, and I will try to locate parts. And you don't have to call the store :-) I just bought a fuel pump for a 50's Chrysler from Napa, they had it next day.

Any decent parts house can get that Plymouth gasket in a couple days, they made that motor for about 30 yrs, Don.

I stumbled onto Halamicek Auto Supply in Gonzales, TX about 5 - 6 years ago on a Texas T-Party tour. They have been in business since the 30's and have quite a collection of old stock . No Model T stuff, but Model A vintage and later for all makes of cars as well as modern stuff. They are not in the antique parts business but happen to have a lot of old stuff.

Stacy Brown in Arlington, Tx also has old stuff exclusively and a website.

Things like pan gaskets and side covers etc, I just buy cork/rubber sheets available in variable thickness and size from our bearing/nut&bolt supplier and cut & hole punch a new one.
