VB gaskets

Ok all I keep finding are rebuild kits can't find just the VB gaskets themselves.

Reason I am needing them I had to disassemble the VB to clean it
after it sat for a few years and the valves got gummed up.

Not sure where to buy only the gaskets I need.

I usually get mine from any local Ford dealer but maybe Rock Auto carries them as well??

These are highly engineered precision vehicles, the first step in diagnosing the problem is to strike the suspected offending part sharply and repeatedly with a blunt object, then re-test.

They really don't cost much from the dealer. I think I paid about $32 including tax for the 2 gaskets I needed to j-mod my 03 CV Sport. Since they have access to all the correct part#'s and diagrams I figure its the best place to go to avoid getting the wrong ones.

WOW, $32.00 for two gaskets ??? I think they cost around $1.77 each retail. More like $3.20 ??

Well I know the upper and lower are cheap but the thick one on the VB cover side is a bit more.

Lol, I forgot to mention I also picked up the trans. filter for it while I was there. So no, I did NOT pay $32 for the gaskets alone.

Now my LX Sport actually shifts like one, not the BS grandpa shifts that Ford gave it. I can't believe they would put out the Sport model and give it the same shift points as a base LX. No wonder the Panther is dead...
