    It did not come with gaskets, and I have no idea what size copper washer to buy, but my digital caliper seems to think 14MM is about right. When I find out for sure, I will edit my post.

    Also, it did not come with the hoses that are on the other side of the flexible hoses (the metal hoses that go into the transmission and transmission oil pump).

    Total cost (shipped) was $87.22 from Tasca Parts Online (RI Ford dealer).

    Ford Dealer says that the gasket is a standard hardware item part number 995621400 and they are $4.60 each, and they don't stock them. I think if I need new ones I can just go to an auto parts store and use whatever oil drain plug crush copper washers that they have. I saw them at Advance Auto for $3 for a pair. Searching for 995621400 on the internet you find numerous Ford and Mazda parts sources where it's way cheaper.

    Local Mazda dealer want's $1.55 each for them and they have them in stock. Just use the above part number.

    I called Tasca this morning, and the phone said the things were discontinued. June 10th, 2015.

    OK, so if I junk my Escort, I'll remove them. And/or if I see new-ish ones in the junkyard should I grab them?

    It depends. The usual problem seems to be rusting out at the bottom where they run under the radiator. And that can be fixed easily by using the right kind of rubber hose. It can also be fixed better by splicing in lengths of new tubing.
    It just makes me sad to see parts for my Escorts disappearing from the sources.

    When I bought my 32 Chev, in 1972, parts for a 40 year old Chevy were hard to get. But they got easier each year, as more people were restoring them, or just needed parts for their car in Rio De Janeiro. So in 30 more years, parts like this for a 2nd gen Escort might become available again - made in Argentina or Mexico.
