Source for Franklin Gaskets?

Recommended Posts

I need to buy some Intake and Exhaust Manifold Gaskets for my 1930 Franklin.  Anyone know of a good source?

 

Thanks!

 

Bill

Maybe Olsen's Gaskets, I have had good service from them. They can make your gaskets if you can't find any anywhere else. Hope they are still in business.

Surprising that club members are so unaware of resources in the club.

Jeff usually prefers to communicate by telephone. I just assembled my 1932 engine with his gaskets, and they are by far better than anything else available.

Thanks Steve. I did in fact reach him by phone and received just what I needed. Got to thank him in person at the Gilmore "Air Cooled" event yesterday.

As a sidenote:  I love Jeff's gaskets, though at the time I did my car most were not available from Jeff (all be it I eventually buy what I could from him for spares).  I found new cylinder hear to exhaust manifold neck gaskets at the local muffler shop (had to do a small amount of filing), made the rest of the exhaust gaskets from Gasket stock, and reused the original intake manifolds via cleaning them up and annealing them.
