I have that same gaskety on my engine and it fit the same way... however I did have to RTV the corners where the pan rail meets the timing cover / rear main t oget a good seal with it..

the mr gasket 2 piece timing cover was a MISTAKE.. that thing leaked.. so i got a nice heavy steel cover (proform) and cut the tabs at the corners off so i could Remove it without loosening the oil pan.. good to go...

I agree that mr .gasket 2 piece is a 2 piece of junk. The cover is so thin that as soon as you tighten the cover it will start to leak. You have to use about a half tube of silicone to seal it up.

^ Thats not too good to hear I didn't have any (noticable) problems with the Mr Gasket timing cover that came with the engine.. Maybe this one will treat me good too? I guess I may be pulling the balancer off again to replace the cover with a quality one... (and to think, the only reason I didn't go with the Edelbrock one was that it wouldn't be in stock for another week...).. Should've just waited..

The one piece ones aren't that bad but the two piece ones are nothing but trouble.

After putting everything back together, my china o ring thermostat housing finally gave, so I put a stock one on, the hose is being "pulled" slightly, but I guess it works for now, while the car is still un-registered/insured. The timing cover is also leaking, not from the oil pan seal, but it appears to be from where the actual "cover" meets the plate that sits against/closest to the block..
