Should be able to get them at any Detroit Allison dealer.
I've never had any problems with 2 stoke parts there.

Derick, depends where you are located Stewart and Stevenson in NM ,W.W.Williams in AZ or give Don Fairchild a call and if you don't know what the gasket is called describe it to him and he will send what ever you need 1-661-391-4520 if you need very many buy a set they cost money when buying individual gaskets.
If you need a shop Geoff is located in Prescott Valley south of Flagstaff off I 17



good luck

I have heard the name Don Fairchild several times in the bus world, i need to get a notebook for this kind of thing and get in the habit of writing these things down when i come across them.  Good info to have when the need arises.  I have a friend in Fernley NV who is a heavy equipment mechanic who has worked on all kinds of diesels over the years but not much with detroits.  He is going to help me do the blower R&R.  His neighbor (2 blocks away) is a retired DD mechanic and he is going to "supervise" the project.  He got in a wreck a couple years ago and can't really do much physically any more but he is sharp as a tack, so I am told.
