Does anyone know a source for an oil pan gasket for my 25 Star other than Olsen's?

Re: Oil Pan Gasket

Hi
Stuff like purchased oil pan gaskets are quite expensive and hard to source. Is there any reason why you cant just cut one out of cardboard?

Re: Oil Pan Gasket

There is a gasket paper you can make your own from. It is thicker than craft paper that I was using as a teenager but way thinner than cardboard. Something like sheet picture framing material might be a substitute.

Al Lambert at Gasket City is still going strong in his Hamilton, Ontario location. He sells gasket material sheets but has no cut out Star oil pan gaskets. Ph. # is 1 888 335 4686 or 905 679 6075.

Re: Oil Pan Gasket

Every oil pan gasket I've ever seen was made from cork. Use 1/8" thick.

Re: Oil Pan Gasket

I guess that is why I have that sheet of cork in my gasket tray, Thanks for the reminder Don.
