Hello,

It's time for my first oil change. Where are you guys getting your early (2 piece engine) sump plate gaskets? The round ones. I can't seem to find them for my 1953 engine.

Also, when you install them, are you guys using any gasket dressing? Or is that not needed?

Thanks for any help and suggestions!

Josh

No sealant, unless you want to make the next oil change a real PITA

Yes, a '53 engine.

Thank you for the help guys! I'll call that shop on Monday and order a few sets. Also, thanks for the help on the dressing.
