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..

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.

Not really..  The fiancee and I were sitting here one night (long before any plating) and I told her I wanted to own a business one day but I didnt know what to call it..  She said; "Well you look like a big angry redhead gorilla...  You should call it red gorilla restorations.."  And there you have it..  Something we both thought was funny and it had a good ring to it..  RGR for short.   Grin

So when I made out a receipt for Steve I went ahead and put that on there and figured I would give it a try as something on the side and see where it goes.  If it fizzles out then no harm.

Welcome to the group corvette bronze is great looking color! Big block or small block car 4speed  or automatic car. I love 68's the best.

And I thought it was Lemans '69's you were stuck on - shows what I know.

Traitor -

Just replace the plugs..  You can not get an accurate reading on reused plugs plus new plugs aren't that expensive..  With choke working correctly also check the resistance on the #5 plug wire  & reference it to the resistance to another wire of similar length..  Once that is don't install new plugs & drive it for 10-15 miles & look at plugs again.  Making sure #5 isn't fouling..  Just my $0.02

Nice choice on car..  Get lots of pics and post them up so we may help you possible identify things that you have questions about.

H21 9 is way too late for a 624 vin. Not crazy about the pad stamp, but I am no expert.

Good catch..  I over looked it this morning when I was on ebay..
