302/5.0 SB Ford pan gasket

Are there any secrets to installing a one piece oil pan gasket that I should know. I'll be installing one this afternoon, replacing a cork version with separate end seals has been seeping. Except for the fact that the @#$% thing has to be tied/taped in place and the little seal ears need to be slid up in their fit, I don't really see a problem - except for the fact I'll be laying on my back with oil dripping on me and my specs.

(Wish that I had done this gasket when the engine was on the stand and upside down )

I use a bit of permatex to glue the thing in place then put the pan on..Weatherstrip adhesive works in a pinch as well..Any way some sticky stuff to hold the gasket while you get the pan into place..

Sam,
I'd use the Permatex on the old cork style (probably contact cement) but this is one of those fancy gaskets - with the raised sealing ridges like a blue Fel Pro head or intake gasket. From the Motorsport catalog:

"M-6710-A50** 5.0L
Designed for use with
smooth rail oil pans.
One-piece design, rubber
bonded on steel reinforcement.
Fits 1983-01 block/oil pans with
dipstick in the block."

Oh well, out comes the contact cement - it always works to hold a gasket in place - sometimes too well

IDK about the Ford one piece, but the fel pro's come with plastic "snap up" studs for just this purpose. I try to keep every set that I get, 'cause you never know when you'll need them.

Not sure what "snap up" studs are. The Motorsport gasket I have has a couple of tabs on each end that slide up into the block - which are similar to the original seals, and I'll be willing to bet will be a PITA for me in about 10 minutes when my contact cement sets. I am using some studs for locating this gasket while I bolt it in place.

DONE - amazing what contact cement can do for your car stickum needs. I would have been done 10 minutes faster except I forgot the pan rail supports - now if it doesn't leak......
