Does the oil filter housing on a 340 use a gasket or an O-Ring where it mounts on the engine?  Thanks, Ger

this should be the correct gasket..

Felpro/Oil Filter Cover Gasket
For your 1971 Dodge Challenger 5.6L 4BL 8cyl
Part Number: 70078
Part Number: 70078
Description: Oil pump gasket
Abrasion And Chemical Resistant: Yes
Inner-Molded Flex-Cord Fibers: Yes
Heat And O-Zone Resistant: Yes


one thing... make sure that when you push the plate against the gasket that the place is sticking up away from the block slightly so when the center threaded adaptor is installed it pulls the adaptor tight onto the gasket surface....

i would bet there is a specification for the amount of gap at the center.. before you put the threaded adaptor in and tighten it...

i am sure the filter pushing down also helps.. but... ..

somebody will know...   perhaps they will share that bit of info that has not been stored in my brain...

all 1968-73 340 use a gasket, not an o-ring. what year engine and what size filter and the 90 degree oil filter mount or the later straight out plate oil filter mount for the fram ph 43 3/4 qt. filter? the 1968-1971? 90 degree iron oil filter mount for the 1 qt. fram ph8a filter uses 3 gaskets total, best is mopar oil filter adapter gasket set p5249320. the later 340-318-360 used a plate and double threaded hollow nut with the 3/4 qt. filter and one gasket.  Description: oil pump gasket ? yes the 273-360 uses a thin oil pump gasket

wow! thanks so much.   Does the through bolt require an o ring or gasket?  It does not seem like it is going to seal with out something.

do u have the early style right angle mount with a large bolt about 3" long? get the p5249320 set and the thin gasket goes under the head of the bolt and the thick gasket goes between the mount and the block in the inner area and the large gasket goes between the mount and block. if u have the later style straight out plate mount with the double threaded center nut there is only the 1 large gasket between the plate and block.

I have a 67 A-100 van. It has the flat plate housing and I can't find the gasket for it anywhere. Does any one have a part number for this gasket? How about a place to find one? HELP!
