Title: Pan gasket
Post by: Stan Paralikis 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 (http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley36.gif)

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.

Yer not supposed to use any tacky gasket or sealers on it.  The ribs cant move then to make a seal.

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????? (http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley3.gif)
 
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

Yup rubber always goes on dry....the silicone/sealers makes it all slippery and it can then slip and slide while tightening it.
