350 Turbo "Crying The Blues"

Along with some other "good stuff" that many of you have read about in regard to my '32 I also have a 350 Turbo pan issue I would like to receive
input on. Simply put, the pan is "crying the blues" (seeping) out of every surface possible around the pan gasket and even the drain plug. And an oil leak of any type on one of my rides I have no patience with. The pan
is a nice shiny piece of what I have started to refer to as cheap tin (cannot
really tell what it is made of) and other than looking pretty and having 350 stamped into the bottom seems to be the weak link in the bottom of my tranny. Short of scrapping the pan for a better quality part (which I already have on the top of my list) any suggestions on how I can get Niagra Falls under control with what I have? Visual examination of the existing pan
gasket reveals that it looks brand new, along with the shiny pan of course.
And no, it came with the '32, I did not install it. As always, any and all
comments and suggestions appreciated.
