    Default 1 pc. oil pan gasket?

    Do you guys recommend using a sealant when using the 1 pc on a BBC ? If so what type and where should it be used?

    no silicone along the rails at all! just a touch where the timing cover meets the block, and the same applies on the back with the rear main cap, just a tad where the cap meets the block.go by the gm dealership and pick up some engine assembly adhesive or the grey silicone, whichever they have. its more of a glue than silicone, but it will not let the gasket move much. the part number is 88861417. i do 1 piece gaskets all the time and this is what i use at the dealer. back when i used silicone, the gasket would move around alot.

    Dare to be different, if it turns out great you can claim you planned it that way.

    Thanks IMPATIENT 1, I've used the 1 pc's before, but not always with good results. The little tits don't want to line up with the holes in the timing cover either.

    speaking of silicone. here are the mopar #s of the best
    I have found, the gray gear sealant part #82300234
    is a adhesive silicone, great for water outlets,oil pans corners ect. and the black ATF RTV is oil resistant.

    I like it because its ready to go by the time you wash your hands and (knock on wood) have never had anything leak when using it. Its not like the regular stuff that you can grab an end and pull it off, this stuff glues!!!

    How is it when it comes time to take it apart? I've used some stuff in the past that took a jack hammer to get it apart. The first time I used a silicone, don't know what kind, I didn't let it skin over before assembly. Later when I went to take it apart, I thought I'd never get it off.

    Comes right of when you use a big enough jack hammer.

    I does stick more than the norm. but not so bad. I dont curse when I know I have to pull an intake if that helps.
