Yeah, OK dad, next time... He he !

You should have seen how much sealant there was on the old gasket, the mechanic I bought the truck from just Goobered it on there, the crank seal too !
He did that when he put the new clutch in, the original gasket from 99 was leaking off course.

When I spoke to Fel-Pro, they didn't even want me to use gasket adhesive, although I may have to, too keep it in place _ the engine is now crank side down of course.
Fel-Pro supplies these small plastic hangers to hold the gasket in place while the pan is mated up _ I have 8 of them, so we'll see how that goes.

There are areas where some RTV is needed, the front timing cover is out about 5 though, it isn't flush with the block.
Also where the gasket has to seat properly into the corners of the rear main bearing cap _ just a very small amount.

Still waiting on the Speedi-Sleeve from SKF, should be here next week.
What a PITA to get one of those _ no stock in Canada and no one wants to ship one.
Had to have it sent to a third party address I have in California.
My local SKF distributor could have gotten one, but it would have been 80 bucks and I still would have had to wait 2 or more weeks.
One would think Canada was on the moon or some sort of disease.

I wouldn't think getting something shipped to Canada would be that difficult. It's not like passing through customs shipping to Mexico.

It's the third party sellers on Amazon etc... that don't want to ship to Canada.
They can't be bothered to fill out a declaration form, even on the computer.

Well, they must sell enough here and don't need the business. Wish I'd had that problem when I was self employed! LOL
