One gasket for the water pump housing to block has failed, where can you get these gaskets? For a '57 Dodge

You can get them in kits, but the easiest and cheapest way to deal with it is to cut a new gasket out of gasket material you can get from any auto parts store. Use a paper hole punch to punch the holes out. It's a smaller diameter so you'll need to keep using it until you clip it out to the right size hole. Because those gaskets are so small, you'll be done before you could finish searching for a proper replacement gasket. I make sure to keep one gasket available to use as a template to make it easier for the next time.

I agree with Powerflite but if you were able to buy a complete FS 7790 PT-2 kit from FelPro, you would have what you need now and, maybe, for the future:

I've used this place to rebuild the water pump in my 1957 Sierra, 325 cu in poly.
It came with the gasket so they might sell the gaskets seperate.

Hmm...

It was my understanding that the OP is looking for the triangular (with holes) gaskets that help seal the four arms of the 315/325 style water pump manifold to the heads at the top and block at the bottom. (???)

Yep, you're right about the gaskets, I forgot the water pump doesn't mount directly to the block.

Those gaskets are included in the Timing cover gasket set-Fel-pro # FPGTCS64432.

A bit late now, just remembered that while not listed seperatly on their site, HH sells just the W/P gaskets if you call them.
