Re: Feeling like Homer Simpson...(Weeping 3B oil Pan Gasket)

>  Is there a secret to reinstalling the oil pan gasket?

I have no experience with 20v pan gaskets but I've replaced the gasket on my 
10v steel pan twice (including just this past week!) and have never had a 
leak.  I just make sure that both surfaces are clean and free of old gasket 
residue (Snap-on makes a really nice gasket scraper tool) and install it dry. 
 Although the manual doesn't mention cross-torquing the bolts, I do it in 
three stages anyway.
