Since there is no pressure there, you can reuse the old gasket, 
providing it doesn't brake on removal.
However, if you haven't already, establish exact cause of leak before 
the start. Loose bolts and wrong bolts in wrong holes have been most 
usual causes, which is lot less work involved.

>My oil pump just recently developed a sizeable leak and I am going to replace the gasket this weekend.  The bentley shows that you have to remove the oil pickup pipe to remove the oil pump.  I cannot find a replacement gasket for this pipe without buying a whole set for $50.  Do I really have to remove this pipe and replace this gasket, and if so does anyone have a known source for this piece?
