1952 216. Need recommendations for a good oil drain plug gasket, I got the irritating drip going and plan on changing the oil in the near future.

Plenty to choose from, was looking for opinions on ones that actually work well, not ones that "fit"

One of mine has a copper "gasket". It is the one which does not leak. Easy enough to make out of flat stock copper.

A good FLAPS could match up a nice one if you took your drain plug in?

You should be able to find a soft copper washer at a hardware or auto parts store.

Second best would be a nylon washer.

- If you have to stomp on your foot-pedal starter, either you, or your starter, or your engine, has a problem.
- The 216 and early 235 engine are not "splash oilers" - this is a splash oiler.

Single washers, nylon or copper can be found at Ace Hardware. Most FLAPS have them by the pack!

I'd rather walk and carry a Chevy hub cap than ride in a Ferd.
I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you smile
