I don't know the engine, but are you sure its not gland packing (like this) if so you would obviously need to measure the channels to get the right size.

Stationaryengineparts.com do felt type oil seal material, but it's not cheap. You'll find it on their website with the gasket materials (I think), there are various thicknesses.

You might also try eBay, as there are many types of modern (better) gasket/seal type materials now on offer. TYM Seals (based in Devizes, Wiltshire) are very good, they have an eBay shop & their own website. I would highly recommend them.

What sort of thickness are we talking (for the felt)???
I had to make up a crank case seal for my WW2 Homelite genny, I made it from modern gasket paper (but not paper IYKWIM) & it works a treat, just took some very precise cutting.
