My 71 body is in the paint shop, good time to freshing up the motor my question is, and sorry but I stink at searches but
I have a Payen gasket for the oil pan, and rubber seals for the front and back of oil pan, do I need to soak the rubbers before I install the oil pan back on the block?

I have these, they worked great, no soaking. I would do it in warm shop though. Rubber is more pliable when warm.
Also, make sure the pan is flat on the bottom, people over tighten the bolts and deform the holes sometimes, If this happens you will need to tap them flush again, and use the oval washers.

It appears that either the rubbers are too long or the side gaskets are too long see pictures does the rubbers get trimmed and how or is the side gaskets get trimmed

Put a little lubricant on it, it will compress down into the pan, do not trim.

That's normal, them sticking up like that, they will compress into place once the pan is tighten. Put a very thin smear of good RTV (I use Permatex Ultra Black) between the area where the rubber piece meets the pan on the exterior side, this wards off any leaks from that area. FWIW, Payen is only 1275 gasket set that comes with the two oil pan rubber pieces, so there's no need to ever buy any other lower gasket set than Payen for the 1275.

Hi Hap,
Can you be more specific or point it on the picture where to put RTV?

I rub a very thin layer on the edge of the rubber piece where it faces outward, then wipe off the excess at where the pan and rubber meet. This is OCD thing I do to prevent any oil form working it's way under under the rubber piece and out of the pan/block.

I note the specific mention of Ultra Black RTV in this particular application -- can anyone outline simply, or point to recommendations of which types of RTVs or other sealers to use where, during engine assembly?

Thanks!
