All you have to do is stop by your local AMC dealer and pick one up.

Seems like about the same time the "gone fishing" sign went up in their window.
Fishing must be good. They haven't come back yet.LOL

Many of the older (pre 65 or so) trannys use a fine stainless steel mesh screen. If you have that clean it and re-use. If the gasket isn't available, the local Chrysler dealer has a silicone based sealant that won't dissolve in trans fluid. Most new Chrsyler trannys use that instead of a gasket. You can also get Permatex "Right Stuff" at most auto parts stores. It's made to replace traditional gaskets and resists tranny fluid. Don't over do it and squeeze any of the product inside the trans. A little bulge won't hurt though. I suggest getting it in the "power bead" can for a trans pan gasket. The pressurized can gives a much more even bead. Use it without a traditional gasket, not with it!

i cleaned my filters by soaking them in gas then blowing them out with compressed air (a tip from Steve at Blaser Auto). if that's no good I'd try americanpartsdepot.com or Blaser Auto (blaserauto.com)

I check NAPA online or go to the store first, then I check JC Whitney.  I find that NAPA can locate 99% of the parts I need for my 1975 Hornet w/232.

Yeah and your Hornet has a TF. --easy to get parts for. not quite so easy for a 59 Rambler.

 First , Matt , too funny .....
The closest thing here to an AMC dealer is my garage ....I'm thinking of buying a sign even...

Surprisingly, even for the 35 the filters are everywhere. B;aser, americanpartsdepot, kennedyamerican, Galvin's, Napa, Rockauto ....  I still like Rockauto, cause if you have time to have the parts mailed,
they can have some cheap prices on maintenance stuff anyway.

They have all tune up parts for all of my cars, from 58-87 .....

Someone is listing a filter for an M11 on Ebay for 25 bucks.... rockauto lists them at 4.89 .....

Emissions parts and pre upper ball joint suspension parts are the only issues I've had finding parts so far.
