Dropped the oil pan to replace gasket and stop the CJ from leaving a trail and marking its territory.
Long story: I ordered a Fel-Pro gasket from RockAuto in June. I did not have time to change it before vacation. Just got to it today (Sunday). While removing the bolts, I noticed I had more bolts coming off then the new gasket allowed for. RA sent me the wrong gasket! I double checked my order. I ordered the correct one, they sent the wrong one. 30 days have pasted but the error was theirs, so I should get a refund. (I picked up the correct one at NAPA.)
The PO, or who ever changed the gasket previously, used cork. That was why is was leaking. Also, he did not tighten the bolt correctly. Most of the bolts I could unscrew by hand. I am surprised I did not loose any.
I had to support the engine and loosen the passenger motor mounts to drop the pan. What a Pain in the Ash! The previous person did not put in the bolt that goes under the motor mount, so I need to find a new one.
I have not finished putting everything back together yet. I want to clean the pan and paint it. Also, I will replace the RMS, since I am in there.
Just Empty Every Pocket.
