dennis kirk usually carries the standard stuff like gaskets and such. There is hondpartsdirect.com (not 100% sure of the web address) and they can get you whatever the dealers can.

For OEM Honda parts, go here to look up your part numbers:

http://www.temeculamotorsports.com/fiche_select.asp

Then go here to order:

www.ronayers.com

Don't bother calling or you'll get one of the young twerps behind the counter that firmly believes they don't sell vintage parts regardless of how many times you've ordered them on-line.

I've ordered from Ayers many times and they are excellent IMO but that's if you have 7 - 10 days to spare. If not, get the part numbers off the first website I posted and start calling the local Honda dealers. Feed them the part number and ask if they have it in stock. You'll pay more but you'll get your gaskets same day. For the valve cover gasket - if nobody local has it, go to a decent auto parts store (Or Wal-mart for that matter) and buy a roll of gasket material, a couple of razor blades, an exacto knife, a smooth glass cutting board and make your own. I've done this before when I was in a real rush and the best parts delivery I could get was a week. It will take a little time and a lot of patience......
