Thanks John & Todd.
John - Did you use your original hardware as well when installing this gasket on an original oil pan?

I do remeber the gasket has little plastic spacers for each bolt location, and you have to start at the end and work the pan down.
My pan is a GM rplacement part with large end gaps. The little plastic sleeves prevent over compression and consistant gasket unformity.
Good gasket, I also used felpros reusable timing gasket hard metal base with silicone face works well.

Has anybody ran into a 69 that has required the thick front gasket? I
have one that takes thick front and stick is on driver side. All if the engine seems to be original.

If it requires the "thick" front seal, you have a Service replacement Z/28 oil pan manufactured after 1975 or a post-'75 production non-Z/28 oil pan.

I recently rebuilt my 302 and used the Felpro 1-piece gasket. I cleaned it very well with lacquer thinner before painting the engine and paint does stick to the rubber.  Over time, some paint will peal from the gasket but this can be touch up.  I have done this twice and it works well and hides the blue gasket.

I know this thread is a little past, but can you re-use the one- piece gasket described above?

Yes, you can - that's why it was developed.

updating old thread: I just used this 1pc pan and it did not come with bolts - just a FYI much better design than original 4 pc cork and rubber
