36 Buick pan gasket


Recommended Posts

Hello to all,

What is the recommended method of installing the straight 8 oil pan gasket, with or without some kind of sealer? Also, can the rear main seal be installed while the engine is in place? That may be a dumb question as I need to crawl underneath and take a look see.

I used a THIN coat of permatex #2, to hold the gasket up to the block, and a THIN coat on the pan side,

In a year of driving, no problems yet.

Can't address the rear main seal, but I suppose you could drop the rear main bearing block and get at the lower half.
