oil pan gasket gasket manufacture

Just a quick question.

I plan on replacing my oilpan gasket on my 04.5 QCSB w/NV5600. Has 126k miles

I ordered a felpro replcament gasket off of amazon. I got the part number from the felpro website. However what I received was the felpro box with a non felpro gasket. I cant remember the brand of the gasket but I believe its face solutions or something like that. I double check the name tonight and repost to be sure.

Is there any reason I should use a cummins gasket? Is a gasket from Felpro or someone similar ok to use? Normally I wouldn't really second guess it. However given the work that is involved to do this gasket i dont really want to have to do it again that soon.

Anybody have experience with this?

Thanks!

So I picked up an engine hoist from work so I can get the pan off. Im thinking of starting this tonight and either finishing it tonight or over the next few nights.

I looked at the gasket again

The gasket says Interface Solutions inc. and part number is TS-9003. It came in a fel-pro box that has the part number OS 30738.

Am i ok with this mystery gasket? Should I try to pick up a cummins one?

Any advice would be very appreciated!

Thanks,

I always stick to factory on something like that. You might be totally fine using the mystery gasket or it might not even line up. I would at least call them.

Only reason I will ask this I because more than once I have had someone ask me about an oil pan gasket and it turned out it was just their blowby tube.......

Are you positive it is the gasket?

Wow thanks for the link steelhead1! I just googled interface solutions to see if the same website came right up and it did. It literally couldnt have been easier.... I spent so much time googling interface solutions and Fel-pro together since I thought for some reason they were connected (it doesnt seem like they are).

sandaholic - I have done the blow by test before by removing the oil cap and placing it on top of the spout unthreaded. I didnt get any movement out of it. In addition I couldn't see any blow by coming out of it. I will try it again to be sure though. In addiiton to this the entire pan flange has oil on it constantly. Like If I took a picture you would see each mounting bolt with at least a drop of oil on the head.

Rpadar - I retourqed them a while ago and it seemed to help just bearly but still leaked and eventually got back to where it was. I torqued them to 18-20ft-lbs and I was able to at least get a quarter turn out of all of them. I know the spec is 22ft-lbs which just seems to damn tight.

I think its either the pan gasket or could potentially be just the front crank seal but I would say that only a 15% chance.

If all of the bolt heads have oil on them then no it wouldn't be the blowby tube. And BTW all of these engines will have some blowby. But I was not referring to the test that people do with the cap. I was talking about oil coming out of the blow by tube. It is on the drivers side and is just long enough to reach just above the oil pan. So to someone who doesn't know it is there they might think the oil pan gasket is leaking when it is just oil from the blow by tube.

I am not saying this is your issue though. You very well might just have a leaky oil pan gasket. I just wanted to explain wat I was talking about.

Thanks for clarifying! Judging by the amount of oil leaking and locations (everywhere) I think its the pan gasket or potentially the front crank seal. Im leaning towards pan gasket though.

Quick question - when installing the new gasket should I use some sort of gasket sealer? The only real write up I saw says he used the ford motor craft stuff. But his explanation of where he put it was confusing and contradicting.

First pull the pan out, any sludge in the bottom?
Then power wash it clean. Examine for any signs of rust or holes.
Poor quality steel and thin paint, they rust through quickly in the road salt states.

If you're around the ocean or road salt and the pan has no holes in it, have it sand blasted spotless. Then have it powder coated then spray with asphalt undercoating to prevent rock chips cutting thru the powder coat.

Make sure the oil pump pickup screen is clean, bolts are tight and junction gasket is still all there.
Clean block and pan surfaces with brake cleaner. Use thin coat of Permatex Right Stuff on the block and pan gaskets surfaces, helps hold the gasket centered while installing and prevents blowouts if the bolts back off.
Use Permatex Blue on the pan bolts.

Check the rear seal for leak
Put in new front seal.
