Does anyone have a throttle body heater gasket in Atlanta?

whats up guys. I'm in GA visiting my uncle. My throttle body heater gasket is shredded and the torx screws holding it in are kaput.

I basically want to replace this here because by the time I get back home it will be too cold to want to do it. I need to drill out at least one of the screws so it's going to be a pain and he has some tools to help etc. Ya know.

But I need the gasket and three torx. All the parts suppliers I know of are either in New England or California and can have this here by friday.. if I pay $30 next day shipping. So would anyone have this stuff on hand? Or know of a local supplier?

To be specific I need 1x 13541285471 and 3x 13541705561

Contact Dave Markert at market motor works. He's just outside Atlanta and is a forum sponsor.

I have one here but am a ways away

Two hose clamps and a hose splice will bypass your problem quickly. Otherwise, some scissors and gasket material plus Allen bolts from the hardware store will get you going again.

Bypass it, you'll never need it in GA.

He might be heading back up to (I think) CT. He was here in CA not too long ago... probably why his location is complicated

Get allen head screws. They are much easier to turn than the torx.
