Geez, need some help

I have the larger 5/8th oil pick up tube sitting on my bench getting rusty and need to install it.
I don't remember what it usually comes out of to get a gasket for it.
Can't even find my receipt.
Please help me remember what cars these were used on

Oh, was it of a grand national or something?

I think it might have been the series II or series III.

No, the 3.8 before the Series 1. Mid to late 80's.

Thanks all, I just can't figure what happened to that gasket so I can continue

I think TA sells one with an o-ring embedded in it.

I'd call TA and ask them, I could be mistaken. However if my memory was correct I can;t think of any reason why it wouldn't.

Anybody order from TA's website before?
How do you add something to the cart?

Probably easiest just to call them. They're generally pretty nice on the phone.
