215 six gaskets

I'm doing some exhaust manifold work on my 1953 215 six-cylinder. I bought an exhaust gasket set from Mac's. What I was sent does not have the correct gasket that goes between the intake and exhaust (between the heat riser). The gasket that would fit between the manifolds on my engine should be 3 bolt-holes and is shorter than the 4 bolt-hole gasket that I was sent. I did find a complete engine gasket set which includes this particular gasket, but a lot of $ for one gasket.... Anyone know a source for hard to find gaskets? Also, the very old and very thick gasket assembly between the carb and the intake manifold is showing its age. I've looked in all the usual places, and am not having much luck.

Update: I found that gasket on Ebay by doing a search for it by part number. Yea for me. $20 w/ shipping.
Does anyone know the part number for that thick gasket block used between a 1904 carburetor to the intake manifold?

You guys are a great help. Many thanks. My part (1 GA 9447) is looking its age.It's supposed to be made of steel / asbestos, but it looks like the asbestos part of it has sort of fallen out over the last 66 years. I'll contact the sources N.D. mentioned.

I always find it interesting, and part of the reason I like the old catalogs, is to see all the early applications and numbers that get lumped together as some parts go obsolete. For instance, in this case, 48-51 226, 6 layers, was originally 7HA 9447. 54-55 223, 6 layers, EBP 9447-A. The 215 gasket, 1GA 9447, does not reference 6 layers in my catalog, just that it's steel asbestos. Presumably there is something unique about each of these parts. If you're a stickler for originality, I'd try to hold out and find the original 1GA 9447 gasket, as it may be different than the B6A replacement part Bill referenced. Or if you're just trying to get it running, it may not really matter and any of these numbers could work.
