571  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / RGR At It Again on: December 04, 2013, 09:27:37 PM
Here is another piece I am restoring..  Keeping it as original as possible.

As received:








Current Stage:







Still not finished but wanted to give some progress shots.  That is the original housing decal and original lens.  I was very happy with how they turned out..  Lens was very scratched and hazy.

First off thanks for the video.. 

The 3 that caught my eye were:

68 LeMans Blue L/88 at the 00:35 sec mark

68 Bronze (?) at the 00:48 sec mark

68 Grotto Blue (?) Z at the 1:58 sec mark

What can I say...  Im a sucker for a 68.. 

Definitely makes me want to attend next year.

I've always seemed to have the drip at the rear main seal, not with oil pan itself.  Drips between the back of the oil pan and the bell housing/clutch cover. Thought that's why Chevy went to the 1 piece in 86? Any sure fire way to prevent this one?


Same scenario along with lots of luck, prayers & silicone.     Cheesy
577  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: Oil Pan leaks... ugh.. on: December 03, 2013, 01:53:28 PM
With this gasket, I'd think if it's all rubber, one doesn't need any other sealers?.. 

The instructions in the Felpro gasket package suggest a light film of silicone at the four corners.  I also put a small bead of silicone between both the gasket and the pan and between the gasket and the timing cover/rear seal housings.  Some of this might be redundant or even unnecessary but when it comes to leakers, it's better to take a few extra steps than to omit one and regret it later.

Ditto that.. 

Still remember to check the corners for gaps like in my first post..

You know what they say..  Great minds...

I assume its still on the stand..?..  If so flip the engine over and place the front rubber seal and rear seal in place along with the gaskets.  Sit the pan in place .  Go around to all the corners and see if the pan rocks at all.  if so you might have to shave the rubber seal down so the pan will lay flat.  You can also have a small light or pen light inside the pan (just tape it do a journal) to help with seeing if there are any gaps.  Just like any bolts over time they will need to be torqued down again.  But the loctite should have taken care of it if it was used.  Also start your tightening sequence from the center area and work outwards (which Im sure you already do)..   Felpro makes a one piece gasket.  It has rubber o-ring seals in the bolt holes that work well.

Regardless of which gasket set you go with you still have to make sure the pan is sitting flush.
