Gaskets?
« on: September 21, 2013, 02:35:33 PM »
Does anyone know where I might be able to order gaskets for a Pinto? Harder than heck to find them...

I need the o-ring and gasket for a distributor and also the fuel pump gasket.

Thanks,

Dianne

Fel-Pro has all the gaskets you need, may have to order them though as a lot of parts places don't stock 2.0/2.3 stuff.

I have some extra distributor o-rings in the parts I have for you, as well as the original fomoco fuel pump which was good when pulled but I felt better with a new one. I kept it around as a good spare. No gasket for it though. They can easily be cut out of a sheet of gasket paper though!

Thinking the very common smallblock chevy fuel pump gasket works fine there, the two bolt one not the four.

Early 2.0 uses an odd pump, with a vertical bolt pattern. Not sure for the 2.3 as I don't have one, but the part listed on O'Reilly's website does look like a standard SBC pump, so it very well might work in that application. If you have a 2.3, parts availability shouldn't be a big issue, since they were used in tons of vehicles.

Site says the 2.8 uses the same FP gasket as the 71-72 2.0's. YMMV.  What motor are you running?

I've had good luck with sourcing parts from RockAuto.com, if it's not something of immediate need (shipping time).

I just replaced the fuel pump on my 2.3 and it does take a SBC gasket.
