  • Engine: gasket set

    I've found a place that sells complete fel-pro gasket sets for the studie v8's for $135. Is this a good price ? Thinking I should order one or two.

    I know you stated that the set is 'complete', but make sure it does include the crankshaft rear seal. is showing the Felpro FS7669S2 for $126.

      Fel Pro sets no longer include the valve cover grommets and a lot of the smaller gaskets they included in the past.
      American iron, real old school
      With two tone paint, it sure is cool

      Its got 8 cylinders and uses them all
      With an overdrive that just won't stall

      With a 4 barrel carb and dual exhausts
      With 4.23 gears it can really get lost

      Its got safety belts and I ain't scared
      The brakes are good and the tires are fair.

      Tried to sell her, but got no taker
      I"ll just keep driving my Studebaker

        Since Felpro no longer markets complete Studebaker overhaul gasket sets they are now sold by our vendor wholesaler to us vendors in several boxes taped together to make a complete set. In other words, separate pan gasket set, separate rear main seal,separate valve cover grommets, etc. If you have found a complete set of gaskets for that price you are one lucky guy!

          I got a pretty complete set at NAPA for a 259 V8. I needed to get the valve cover grommets from SI but everything else was there. About $65.00.

            Doublepaddle, do you have a Napa PN # for the gasket set??

              I cannot find the slip for the gasket set from NAPA. You can try HS76695-2 ..........Do not know if that is the one. They have me listed as a 3E7 4.2 L 259 CID V8 if that helps. The parts man is also my mechanic so I do get a good discount. He got the gasket set himself and I may not have gotten a slip .
