ofelas Ah, since I don't expect free shipping on a low dollar item, I generally ensure I order enough product to squeak by for "free shipping".

Dynamic You should go back and retorque the fiber gaskets after about a week. 10-12 ft lbs... No leaks, and maximum transfer of the pan's structural rigidity to the case (which is one of the main reasons for running an aluminum pan).

If one's counting to save $ - then, as mentioned above, 10 lbs-ft on a DRY fiber gasket does the trick just fine.

Thanks! Too bad the dealer list on LubeLocker's web site doesn't work - I need a gasket today!!

$40.16 incl tax/shipping. That's a no-go for me. Seriously, $40 bucks for a gasket?

02smokin Fiber gasket here no leaks. Most people over tighten the bolts which crushes the fiber gasket causing leaks. 10ftlbs is all ya need

4everlearning The lip or on our trucks there’s no lip but there is a bit of a ridge that runs down the middle of the surface.

Re "lateral support", are you referring to the "lip" on the stock pan?

Apparently some are using the stock Mopar OEM gasket with these aluminum pans - with no leakage problem! Anyone hear otherwise?
