Default Oil filter adapter gaskets

Howdy,
I have a small leak at the adapter for the lubrication oil filter. It's the bracket where the four oil hoses connects. I am about to purchase the set of gaskets, but:
1. I don't actually know how are they called. Is it something like "Dorman 66201 engine oil cooler gasket"?
2. What set do You advice?
3. Or maybe just the regular o-rings? The o-rings I can get from a local shop, the gaskets would have to be ordered in US, so the shipping is gonna short my wallet for $30-$40 for shipping only.

Any tips are welcome.

Brgds, Mike

The first time I did all my oil lines, I used the o rings. I made it a few miles down the road, and I noticed a blue cloud of oil smoke behind me.

The o rings failed, and I had to get towed home. I replaced with the figure 8 looking metal reinforced gaskets, and didn't have a problem with them.

Its possible I over tightened the bolt, and messed up the o ring, but I'll never use them again. But I can get the others for much cheaper that you can.

Mike
O rings will have to be the oil resistant type not just a standard O ring
Try rock auto, { oil cooler gasket } they ship to Poland but as I don't have your postal code I couldn't see how much shipping will be

Ye, the "8" shape are the Dorman ones.
Rock Auto has reasonable shipping prices (around $10). Damn, I really like it! I've been ordering at ebay, but I think since now it's over Too bad I've just placed an order for the coolant pump. $49 for Delco and $50 for shipping. At Rock Auto I'd get the same for $60 all together.

Just to confirm, is it Fel-Pro ES70016 set? They don't seem to be selling these "8"s.

Thanks a lot! I will definitely order these. You have pointed me a way to Blazer's heaven. There are so many other premium parts... I am gonna browse deeper and probably will make a bigger shopping there.

I shop local when I can to support locals but sometimes the price makes ordering on the net worth while - When ordering off the net I usually do Rock auto or Summit Racing for standard parts.
Here awhile back I R&R the injection pump on my 1983 Chevy 6.2 diesel, local costs were way over a thousand bucks, on line was around three hundred after returning the core.
I just checked and it looks like Summit Racing ships international too

...just placed an order. I am $200 shorter.
I found an odd - they have stock split on several warehouses. As, for example, my order is going to be delivered from three of them, so they will charge me the shipping costs triple.
But whatever Great supplier, I owe You!

Here's a hint that helped me with installing those gaskets, specifically the fiber ones but also the big large o-ring; I used some petroleum jelly (Vaseline) to hold them in place overhead while I mounted the adapter. I saw that this trick is used by engine rebuilders to prime oil pumps and figured it could work here and it did.

Hmm I never had over one shipping charge even out of mult. warehouses, prob because of overseas shipping, Best wishes hope it all works out for you
