Due to my awesome Random Tech cat (that's throwing codes...) I'm sourcing a gasket for this location next week, I'll post up here when I'm done. Note: there have been numerous threads about the crappy quality of the gasket RT sells. Regardless, I called them and it's 6 bucks if you want to go that route. I guess you could call up Ray at McNews since you're in that part of the country, he might just have one/order one/make one.

For a temp job, I used the "exhaust flange gasket" for a 1955-78 (i think) chevy V8 and some copper RTV. The holes dont line up, so just cockeye it and try to center it. It's holding up suprisingly well after 100 miles of city driving. The girly gets back from a 300-mile trip tomorrow, so i'll post up how the temporary gasket held.

Not on this list? Almost certainly crap.
