I'm putting a new pan gasket on my MKIV BBC w/Milodon pan and using the one piece for the first time. I splooged the silicone gasket on the timing cover with the four piece kit on the last go 'round.
On the one piece, no sealant at all on the rails and just a dab at the transition to the front cover and the radius at the rear on both the block and the pan?
If I use RTV at the radius let it set for how long before installing the pan, then how long before full torque? Is there a different torque spec than OEM on the one piece?
I will be vaccum and soap checking before reinstall this time too.
