Haven't needed those gaskets specifically, but FelPro has never done me wrong.

All the ones I've used I got from Amazon or RockAuto. Fel-Pro has their own site but I don't think you can order direct from them.

Go to RockAuto.com, type in your info, and have a look. It'll be a decent ballpark price, Amazon might be cheaper though. Parts stores will cost the most unless you've got a good coupon code.

I guess cork gaskets are an art form or the ones nowadays suck. I just pulled the original off my 1980 Dodge A727 and it was not leaking. I could tell because the factory blue paint was on the sides of the gasket.

The cork gasket nowadays do suck. I sold parts for awhile and the old gaskets were much more dense; the new ones were thinner and much softer. I like the rubber impregnated fiber trans gaskets. I think the Fel-Pro are that type, the one I have now is rubber because that's all the parts store had and I was in a rush last time.

RTV (I like Ultra Gray) for the diffs.

I replaced my left motor mount with an Anchor from RockAuto and I filled the voids with polyurethane but it's still sagging more than I'd like for being just a couple years old. I'm going to get some real poly mounts at some point.

for the transmission pan, see if the dealer will still sell the reusable rubber gasket. I really like it.

If at first you don't succeed, use more speed.

I buy rubber impregnated gasket material buy the roll & cut my own diff gaskets because I prefer a gasket to goo. There isn't a gasket appropriate for the 44-a so that is when I started making my own.
