Pan Gasket

Am I better off to use grey RTV on my oil pan or buy the $100 + gasket from Ford?

Re: Pan Gasket

there is no "gasket"...even from Ford.

Use the Wacker T-442 sealant (caulk tube) OR
Ford# F5TZ-19G204-AB, 5oz caulk tube OR
IH# 1830858C1 (caulk tube)

Make sure the surfaces you want to adhere to are squeaky clean. Use BrakeKleen or the like.

Re: Pan Gasket

Re: Pan Gasket

I bet JB weld and duct tape would work great. But you would need a moto tool to ever pull the pan again.

Actually, I would use the International stuff also.
