Any chance the rear main is leaking and not the pan? Very common on the 2 piece rear main. My new 350 just started dripping from the main. Pan gasket is dry as a bone. Not planning on changing it any time soon. It drips a few at night and while i'm driving but i'm too old to care and its too hot to do anyway LOL.

Does your son have any suggestions as to technique for removing the old cork gasket without getting pieces in the pan? Does he flush the pan out afterwards? Mine has only 4k miles on it. rapsag
