Yes, my thoughts as well. Thank you for the information about HD complete rocker box sets, I'll give the local dealer a call today. I figured they probably had a set, rather than buying each piece individually. Nothing worse than having to make multiple trips for one issue.

Well, according to my local dealer, they only sell a complete top end gasket set, not a separate rocker box set. Even worse, I can actually buy the individual gaskets from Ronnie's online cheaper than at my local dealer, even when shipping is factored in. Go figure. Not to mention time and gas involved in driving 20 miles to the dealer and back. Sad.

I just used some Amazon points and ordered a Cometic rocker gasket kit, C9765, $35 delivered. Thanks to all!
