F6Guy is starting off with a positive reputation.
egge machine, h&h machine shop, joblots, hot rod and custom supply, flathead jack just to name a few. Your local parts houses should be able to get gaskets for you from fel-pro. I was also able to get rebuilt water pumps from Oreilly auto parts.

Im not sure? LOL, is this one? maybe its just a tube of JB weld?
this picture is of my latest flathead purchase looks like it had a drain plug? at one time and they filled it in when it was rebuilt??
Click the image to open in full size.
maybe the price will be much less if you dont order the freeze plugs?

I actually talked to the owner (he's local) about rebuilding my flathead but he's never done one before so I got scared off! hmmm

I also saw just a complete gasket set on Ebay a day or two ago, not sure if it was a good price or not though? let us know what you end up finding and final price, thanks
