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.
