Oil Pan Gasket

Ok so I went to put my moroso pan on the other day with my summit timming cover and this one piece gasket from fel pro os34510t Well, the one piece gasket I guess it is made with the thick front lip, and the timing cover will only take a thin front seal, If i use the 4 piece cork set from the engine gasket kit I can make it all bolt togeher but I would rather not. I found this fel pro part number OS34509T which is a one pice with a thin front seal but it looks like it has no provisions for a dip stick? The timing cover part number is SUM-G6300W and the pan is a MOR-20200 the block is a 2 piece rear main sbc 350 and has provisions for a dip stick on either side. As you can see with the pan I have I would like to use the one on the passanger side. Any one know if this gasket will fix the problems I have? Thanks a ton for any help you all can be.

I did see the os34509t when looking through our fel-pro book at the shop and put a link up. But according to engineczar it's a LH dip stick only ehh.. well then, I guess I could get that and send back the pan and swap it for a MOR-20190, which is the same pan, just for pre 80 blocks with the dip stick on the left. But that gasket is a thin front seal and will seal a left hand dip stick pan? If so that would be great and I'll get to ordering and mailing. Thanks for the replies

I'm surprised. I must be out of touch. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought all SBC timing covers were the same and that only the oil pan changed to make the thick-thin change. I used a Fel Pro one piece, it had (2) dipstick holes, for either left or right configuration, and it went on pretty tight, but tightening the bolts, it did come down flush in front as it should. Or, at least, so it appeared.

You are correct. The difference is in the oil pan. Chevrolet used the thin front pan seal pan up until about '74,all with a drivers side stick. Around '74 a thick front pan seal pan was used and a drivers side stick until '79 or so.

A change was made to a pass side stick around '80 still using the thick front seal.

OK. So maybe 71-c10 has a problem with his oil pan, but the gasket should work fine with the timing cover. That said, I thought all the moroso pans were large radius (thick seal) pans. Musta missed that one. Or maybe, 71-c10 just needs to apply a little persuasion.
