Here's a process I've had success using. A slight schmear of Hylomar on the gasket to pan surface. Invert pan on bench. Put a few cinder blocks on it and have dinner. Next day, a slight schmear of Hylomar on the gasket, and using a jack and a suitably sized board, jack the pan to the engine. Then bolt it up. 1/4" drive extension is helpful. Don't use the bolts to pull it up to the engine.

Front end done?

Can't slight Peter's technique but I prefer Aviation Form-a-gasket. Never have figured out why Hylomar became so popular.

Hi Peter,

Hylomar is non-hardening compound ( non-setting) why you would wait over night ?

Doesn't matter much what sealant. A guy's gotta eat!

Hylomar is the way to go. It is not effected by petroleum products, like hot oil and gasoline. You really do not need any sealant if the pan is straight. That is what gaskets are for. Never cut the end corks shorter!

Hi Peter,

By the way this is 1275 engine with front an rear gaskets. I’m little concern about where the front and rear gaskets meet the side gaskets.
