hey its me again, btw iv'e got a 66 ht. iv'e got a 68, 327 in mine.

<-----

is it a stock pan and timing cover? that usually makes a difference i think cork works better than rubber but thats just my opinion. the most important thing to remember is snug is good but dont overtighten the bolts or you will warp the pan and then your screwed!! if you have a kit usually there is a piece of paper to tell you what applications to use. good luck and let me know if i can help with anything else

FelPro makes a one piece oil pan gasket .....like the ones GM came up with for 86-up SBC's. I have one on my 283. They are about $37 but well worth it. The parts man who sells FelPro will get you the correct #.

I agree with duece roadster, The Fel pro one piece pan gasket is the only way to fly. I thought they were only 25 bucks but maybe i was mistaken. Good luck and have fun

thanks for ever ones help.i would have gotten a one peace but they i would have had to order it.i did put the oil ban back on with new cork gaskets.i used fel-pro.i relazed the front seal it suppose to be trimed on the ends and the think it was leaking before because it was overlaping the side gasget.but it look good now
