That’s what makes swallowing the cash on a TCI or Moroso pan so hard, I know, or hope anyway, a more affordable option will be around again. I mean, I have two small blocks and could use a spare 904 so, I’ll end up buying another deep pan sooner than later.Well there is that.
It leaked, then the reusable rubber gasket I bought leaked so, gasket maker; and now, it’s leaking after a couple weeks, hence, three oil leaks in 1 month…so new trans pan in a few days.Gasket maker? What's wrong with using the gasket that comes with the filter? One of the downsides (upsides maybe?) of owning lots of used cars in the rust belt over the years is I've replaced more than my share of oil and transmission pans. And nothing is more aggravating than being on the ground, under a car, and finding the last guy didn't use a gasket and thought the torque specs were suggestions. Leaky glued on pans... ugh
Three fails and in the trash it goes. Lip is straight, bolts were torqued to spec with sealant on threads, bolts are actually where it’s leaking from. I need the extra capacity anyway to help keep the trans happy with the 3.21 gears in the rear now.I switch to the reusable mopar gasket with no sealant. Never had to replace a pan but plenty had to be knocked straight.
Years ago I had an AOD that had a uneven gasket surface that only the warped factory pan would mate to.
