Any local sources for SU carb gaskets?

All , I'm looking at the gasket that joins the carb assembly to the intake. Can the be bought in the US or do I have to ship it from England?

Thanks

The prices are in dollars so I assume this is an American Company.

Thanks guys all. What a PITA
One bolt and it would come right up they said!

There's an insane amount of emissions control on this car. Have anyone deleted the EGR piping?

About 15 years ago, I bought a 73 MGB as a shell with 9 boxes. I pretty much sprayed it down with superglue and drove it through the moss catalog. We're old friends

How the bloody heck did it run? Just got back from my buddy's place who rebuilds SU's and we took these apart. Everything was seized. Luckily he had the kits on hand to rebuild them.
