Just Checking Before I Replace the Oil Pan Gasket
This morning I have replaced the rear main oil seal and fitted a new oil pump. Having reviewed various threads on the forum, there are no shortage of methods for actually replacing the oil pan. Some say fit the seal to the block first and other say fit the seal to the pan first.
What is the best way to complete this task? Also is it worth running a bead of RTV around both sides of the gasket or just stick to the corners as per the service manual?
