When you fit a new manifold gasket smear it with grease - it will last longer and it will be reusable.

It is Saturday - I would order on line and get it delivered soonest. From their front page they appear to be still operating and dispatching parts.

Can you not use your old gasket? Smearing in grease usually softens up the manifold gasket enabling it to be reused.

Try minimine at Longton, they are also on eBay. They do a cheap one and a slightly more expensive one that is thicker and can be reused. Call in if you get the chance, they have everything for the 1275 and have been working on the A series engine for ever.

Just had an email from Midland Sports and Classics, they are open for mail order from Tuesday, they are good for generic parts.
