    Might be time for Owner Produced Part?

    Maybe a firm such as these. Looks like they probably CNC water jet cut custom ones.

    Or sheet material from McMaster-Carr. Cut 'em by hand?

    Thanks Marty. No luck with Univair either. It’s a Scott Aerogauge. Univair actually sells the gauge, but they were unable to point me in a direction for gasket acquisition.

    Someone told me to try a Rochester Gasket for a mechanical fuel gauge (BUNA A) P/N 15-4. Spruce has them, so will see tomorrow if they work or not.

    Yeah Iíll try NAPA.

    Univair sells a gauge, but wonít sell the gasket solo.

    EI said they donít provide a gasket like that over the phone.

    Thanks.

    Thanks Mike. I just zoomed in on the univair gauge and realized it says Rochester Gauges now. Looks like they sell lots of gauges (non aviation) with same bolt pattern and they sell the Buna-N, 0015-00004 gasket to go with them. That’s what I ordered from spruce thanks to a PM from another member. Will know tomorrow if that’s a $3.65 solution.

    Thanks everyone for the help.

    Buna-N, 0015-00004 from AC spruce is a perfect fit. $3.65 each.
