FELPRO Gaskets

Postby australi » Thu Jan 30, 2014 12:01 pm

Where's the cheapest place (around or available to Brisbane) to buy FELPRO rocker cover gaskets for a 350 Chev V8?

The last pair I bought were from a hotrod place way over the other side of town...

Ebay doesn't have much.

I get My Valve Cover Gaskets from Summit.
I own a Corvette with stock exhaust manifolds, So I buy a few sets at a time.
I think I have 2 pair in the shed now.

Summit will take too long.
I'd forgotten about Rocket; trouble is they're not listing prices.

Too long for what? 1 - 2 weeks delivery seems to be nothing in the grand scheme of getting your cars back on the road.

Summit is always a week or less.
Steve, It will take you much longer just to get the covers off.
(Based on past car repair timetables.)

Perhaps your right River. Maybe Brissie is much closer for the posty.
Really Mate, Summit is about 5 days , give or take. They always amaze me with their speed. I cant get a letter to my boys in Caines that quick!

rocket just get the stuff from summit and add their cost to it .

cheaper just to go to the SOURCE.

They can be handy if you need something in a hurry though
