theres a custom one that sells on ebay i think its cosmo brand, made to order looks pretty good, much better than stock. your gonna need the entire head gasket kit though, not just the headgasket

lol i say it often. but try the supporting vendors. hoenstly, they support us and we have them here cause they most often do great work and help out board members. worth a shot, nothing to loose. theyll probably have a line on good parts too....plus you can use this as an opportunity to upgrade !

Get the OE regular size. Don't get victor reinz (Erling or Goetze only). Only victor makes a kit, so if you need a whole kit, either buy victor + Erling gasket, or build the kit yourself ... most of the stuff is not really needed. The gasket itself is only like $100.
