FEL-PRO Transmission Pan Gasket
« on: February 24 2020, 08:08:04 PM »
Can I apply silicone on pan for this Fel-Pro gasket, or install it dry?

I have always installed them dry.  If I were using silicone, I would glue the gasket to the transmission instead of the pan.

A lot of broken parts does not make you a racer; it makes you a slow learner.

Do you used the same gasket type, and if not what brand?

Not much choice in gaskets for the transmission. Felpro is what I have used.  One of these days I will change mine again.  They tend to start leaking when the car is not driven much-just like all the other gaskets :D


72-120 lb-inches of torque.  I think I used to set my wrench to 100 lb-inches
