    oil return gaskets for t3 turbo

    The oil feed line gasket is leaking on my 760. Need one pronto, what would be a good material to make out of scratch with? I can't find any on the IPD Website, tried Rockauto. Groton has 'em but that would be 5-7 days away from me and I am not in the mood of walking that long.

    3 pm's every 6 minutes is harsh.

    Would a contributing member be permitted to send more PM's ? I get quite a few and it's a PITA to sit back and wait for the timer to expire - thinking I'm a spammer or whatever. Any input back would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
