I keep busting my oil pan gasket
After getting water in my oil last time wheeling I replaced the oil pan gasket, which was a "U" when I pulled it out. It started life as a one piece Fel-Pro. After replacing it I took my TJ for a test drive today and now I'm hemorrhaging oil from the rear of the oil pan, same place as last time. The first gasket broke where it goes over the main bearing cap/rear main seal. Today it's leaking form the same spot. It was a serious PITA to get the gasket to fit when I replaced it, am I doing something wrong? I may have overtorqued the bolts, my lowest torque wrench only goes down to 12.5 lb-ft so I went hand tight on a 3/8" rachet. Is there a trick to get the gasket to seat properly in the main bearing cap and not pinch where it goes from flat to half-circle?
