Default engine gaskets

1993 bonny, vin "L", got my engine on the stand, I want to replace gaskets here and there, to stop some seepage. I need an oil pan gasket, maybe front and rear crankshaft seals, timing chain gasket kit, rocker arm cover gaskets, and everything needed to do the lower intake manifold. Ha, I guess everything except head gaskets. Can someone direct me to a supplier that fits this need? It seems I can find some, or kits that overlap, or kits that have a lot of stuff I don't need, and the upper plenum gasket kits seem to be nowhere, unless I want an upper plenum too. Thanks. Mike

Default sets

Check Auto Zone or Advance for Felpro gasket kits. Sometimes you have to accept an extra gasket here and there to get what you want.

Default except..

What about a plenum gasket? This gasket seems to elude the usual gasket sets..

Default

You don't need it, and there'* no reason to pull it off the lower. The L27 doesn't have the hidden bolts on each end for the LIM under the UIM like the L36 does.

Pull the upper and lower attached to each other.
