Does anyone have any opinions on oil pan replacement and gaskets? Stick with dealer, specific aftermarket? Doesn't matter, they all fit the same? Same goes for the rear main seal, any input?

I went wheeling the other day and when I came home I parked the Jeep in the garage.
I went to start it again and when it started it made a grinding sound coming from the flywheel.
I thought it might be a bad starter, the bendix wasn't returning and the gear was grinding on the flywheel.
So I took the starter out and returned it to Autozone because it has a lifetime warranty. Got a new one, put it in.
Same noise. Pulled the starter, no grind marks on the bendix gear.
Held the starter in place and had someone start the Jeep. When it started I pulled the starter away from the bell housing.
The noise was still there and I could see sparks in the bell housing. Shut the engine off right away.
So what I'm thinking is, maybe a bolt that holds the clutch plate on fell off or is loose and rubbing?
Anybody wanna' guess? I know I have to pull the tranny but I'm curious what you all might think it is.
I'll report back when I pull it as to what it is.

Betcha' wish your girlfriend was as dirty as my Jeep!

Hang on! This is gunna' be a thrill ride of geriatric proportion!

I spent a few hours over at Joe's today and watched him burn some metal on Taylor's skid plate. Then Taylor helped me put my battery sensor cable back in. Actually he did all the work and I watched and tried to lose some of Joe's tools. I wish I could of headed out to CC. That's always fun.

Yeah, it was a beautiful day out there. Not too hot yet. We ran Sidewinder, then Bronco Peak. If we'd have had more time, were going to try and squeeze in gunslinger to, but had to be back for my other son's piano recital.

Can you maybe get in there with a long magnet through the starter opening or the inspection plate?

Funny you mention that. I did try that. I have one of those HF magnets on a gooseneck and it just kept sticking to the flywheel.
I need one of those inspection cameras.
Either way I gotta' pull the trans I'll bet. It's not that hard of a project, just time consuming.
Too bad it doesn't need a new clutch.

Dont use a gasket for the oilpan!! They will just eventually fail, I clean the block and oilpan surface really well using brake clean, then go get yourself some Permatex "The right stuff!" comes in a aerosol can like cheese whiz, put a good bead on the pan and install, this way you have a permanent seal that will not ever fail.

I dont remember the last time I used a pan gasket, use the sealant where applicable is far better than any gaskets unless they are the aluminum/silicon type.
