Dale. If you don't find one at the price you want. Buy gasket material the same thickness or close and make your own. I have used a thin coat of grease on the part that needs to gasket the lay the piece on the gasket material to be made. The grease will make a outline including bolt holes. Then use scissors or razor blade to cut the gasket. Simple !!!! Takes very little time.

I cut gaskets out with a hammer. Lay the gasket material on the cover, use a hammer and tap around the edges and it will cut the material on the sharp edge of the cover. Use the rounded end of a ball-peen hammer to do the bolt holes. Do a couple of holes first and put bolts on them to hold things in place. Dad taught me this 40 years ago. Mike

Well I made a gasket out of a 49 cent poster board. I used your hammer trick. Worked great. That's 45 bucks I can put into the tractor somewhere else. Thanks Dale

Same here, Mike. I've done that for many years. I save the posterboard-like material from under seed pallets. Works great for gasket material. Mike
