Does anyone happen to know the right gasket to use on the ventilator valve connector, where it meets the valley cover? I pulled a crusty gasket off the connector, but can't seem to find the right replacement online.

I have them new from the engine rebuild kits I have brought in over the years and sell for $3 as seen below and can ship from NC to CA 1st class letter rate (no tracking) for $2, or 1st class parcel for $4 (tracking), or 2-3 day priority (tracking) for $8 for a total of $5, $7 or $13 depending on shipping preference. Shoot me a PayPal to and will have one on the way tomorrow morning. If you don't have PayPal email me at and I can send an invoice so you can pay with credit/debit card.


It is just a round cork gasket. You can easily make one by getting a sheet of cork material from any auto parts store. be sure to use a new razor blade.

Russ is right. These are easy to make using a sheet of cork rubber gasket, a utility knife, and a steady hand. The issues is sometimes getting a good template. If you have an old gasket available the easiest method is to lay on a piece of paper and spray with rattle can paint, lift the old gasket and there is your template.  Simply overlay on the gasket material and use a utility knife to cut out. Since this is just a circle, so you can measure the inner and outer diameters and draw the circle on a piece of paper, overlay the gasket and cut out. 

Since I have the new gasket in my hand here are the specs: ID 1 3/8", OD 1 7/8", 1/8" thick, 1/4" width.
For small gasket projects, I like the Fel-Pro 3060 4 pack gasket set.  It's $9.39 via Amazon and if you are a Prime Member (who isn't!), it will be delivered to your door free in 2 days. I just re-upped last week. Our local AutoZone sell for $8.99 but the 40 cents savings is not worth it and I can wait 2 days! For the Amazon link Click Here. They also sell individual sheets of different gasket material. For the 4 pack set here is what is included:

One cork-rubber sheet = 10"x 8 5/8" x 1/8"
One cork-rubber sheet = 9 1/8" x 8 5/8" x 1/16"
One rubber-cellulose sheet = 9 3/4" x 8 5/8" x 3/64"
One rubber-fiber sheet = 9 1/4" x 8 5/8" x 1/32"

Rear Side Window Stainless Sill Removal

Posted by Lee Martin on June 24, 2019 at 3:07pm 2 Comments

I'm looking to replace a piece of the stainless trim that sits on the outside of the car like a sill outside the rear passenger side window.  I can just barely see one screw at one end but does the door panel and/or window need to come out to access this?  If anyone has done this I'd like to learn what is involved.  Here's a photo of the piece I'm talking about:…
