Hi folks, I"m getting to a point in my restoration of my "A" where I need to start putting things back together. The only problem, aside from remembering where I put everything, is, I have no idea what to use for the different gaskets on the chassis. I"ve been looking here, there and everywhere for replacement gaskets, with little to no avail. I"ve found thousands for the engine, but I need gaskets for the rest of the tractor. I want to do the restore as close as possible to original, so please don"t suggest "just squirt a bead of silicone on "er and call it good." I want to know what material I need for each location. For instance; between the axle housing bearing cover and final drive? Is it still available? What"s the closest substitution? I know it"s kind of a daunting task, but I was hoping someone else has already done the work and posted it somewhere. I would prefer fact rather than, "I think" or "I used (x) on mine." I"m not trying to be rude, and I appreciate the advice, but I"m going for original. Besides, I get confused enough. I don"t need 50 different opinions! Thanks in advance!
Farmall Dude.

You need a new dealer. Yours sucks. Johnson Tractor Janesville, WI?

If they are aholes and the other dealers are too far away order from Carter & Gruenwald (Bermuda Ken here on YT) or Messick's. Both of them would be more than happy to ship you genuine CNH gaskets. I buy all my seals aftermarket.

Most of the gaskets can be made in the shop. All you need as a roll of gasket material (NAPA) and a small ball peen hammer and a pair of good scissors.

You need a parts book, it will give the location of the gaskets or look at the parts on CaseIH.com. CaseIH will have 99% of the gaskets you need. Yes I have completely disassembled and assembled a Super A, however don't ask me where they all are--I don't remember what I did today, much less a couple of years ago.

I have a parts book, which is a must when it comes to re-assembly. I called my IH dealer and was told "those are all obsolete, you"ll have to make them yourself". He can get Engine gaskets, but the chassis gaskets, no. (so he said) That"s why I"m posting here... If they are available, (less than the $600 I saw in another reply) that would be better. But, if not, or if all are not, I still need to know what material I need to use, and what thickness. If someone knows, it would be a big help.

Did you check with the dealer? I haven't had a problem getting gaskets for stuff a lot more rare than your Farmall A from them.

Do you have a parts book? That will help you with part numbers and if there was a gasket or not.

600 sounds like they seen you coming you must have got all new bearings for that kind of money. My local Car Quest gives me great discounts but even at list prices not that high.

There is a seal on each end of the diff shaft and no gaskets are needed as the seal keeps the tranny lube in the tranny and same with the final drive no gaskets there. What else is apart that you mite need a gasket.
