Pan Gaskets

by Roger List

 

Thanks for the replies. I asked someone about this some time ago and he said that he soaks them in some kind of oil or something. I can't remember what it was though. The real problem with the rear seal is that it has to fit into a groove in the main bearing cap. Even if you get it to stay in the groove on each end the loop sticks out of the groove about a quarter inch or so in the middle, so how do you ensure that as the pan is installed the seal is compressed into the groove? I agree with Vern that using long guide pins to ensure the pan goes on straight is a good idea but I'm still concerned that the rear seal might slide off into the pan when it starts compressing into the groove. After all this time I too would have thought someone in the gasket business would have come up with a better solution to the cork end seals.
