Pan gasket
« on: November 15, 2008, 07:42:47 AM »

Who makes a [color=#ffff00 size=3]CORK[/color] oil pan gasket for the 727?  I have searched everywhere and all I can find is the rubber ones.

The less expensive "carded" kits from NAPA come with cork gaskets.  I don't remember the part number but it contained gaskets and filters for the 904 and 727 for about 9 bucks.

Oh Stan  Such a hurry
 
You should have gotten a pan gasket from the dealer for a 518 Trans.  Re-useable and designed NOT TO LEAK.  That is unless you are installing it

Yep  Suckers are great too.  No need to over torqe them, seals on slightly distored pans, and reuseable.  The 518 case is the same case as a small block 727.  The difference is a few more clutches, over-drive and electric controlled.

I agree with Steve.
I used the A518 one on a 70 Challenger.
Perfect.

Best kit I have found is from Ukrainian Wheel (aka: Canadian Tire) It's a gaske and filter combo and the gasket is really thin and is either all rubber or polymer or rubber coated cork or paper...you can crank the living %^&$ out of it and it wouldn't split or fish mouth out.

The newer truck pan is also a deep pan,compared to the shallow 727,and a trans shop should have a few kicking around!. Pick up the extention with it and you should be good to go! When i got my deep pan from MP,the new kits come with that gasket and a new "revised" billet extension!. Good insurance for performance or towing heavy loads!.(As if a C body ain't a heavy load already)!.

WHAT?????
 
OH $%$#@    After buying the gasket I went over to the service dept. and asked to speak with their tranny tech.  I asked him if the gasket needs RTV and he said absolutely. 
 
So, now what do I do?

What have you got on there?  High Tack?
Try to loosen it with brake Klean or some carb cleaner.  That gasket is pretty robust.
 
It should be fine,
 
I READ in the factory service manual you are supposet to put that up dry
