Urgently need a C3 cork valve cover gasket


As the title says really, urgently need a gasket for my '78 Anniversary model. MOT is in 9 days and after firing it up for the first time in a while the o/s gasket is leaking badly down the block.

Recommendations welcome.

Thanks.

I have just bought a set directly from the USA, not sure what I paid with shipping and duties.

I am willing to help you out.

Re: Urgently need a C3 cork valve cover gasket


I recently got a set from Scott at Corvette Kingdom. But, not the cork type but a new "silicone" material which has good reviews. Unfortunately, I can't comment myself as I've yet to fit them! Not expensive, by the way and quick shipping by Scott Thumbs up

Thanks all, especially Germax as that offer is certainly going out of your way to help a fellow owner. I'll be on the blower tomorrow, just had a bad couple of days with the 'vette not wanting to play ball, an MOT coming, and a gathering in the Three Sisters track in Wigan coming soon.

^^ This. I recently got a set of valve cover gaskets for my 1968 from Real Steel. Arrived promptly and look good, but I've yet to fit them.

Like Stephen I bought a set of silicone gaskets (12) for the valve covers, and I also bought a silicone replacement set (33) for the sump. I fitted mine (unlike Stephen) and have had no leaks in three years.

Thanks again. I got the gaskets from Real Steel and they arrived this morning. Can't argue with service like that!
