Oil leak

Built a 454 for a friend and he wanted to use his chrome oil pan. There is a small hole that the front pan seal has to help hold the front rubber gasket in place, it's now leaking oil out of that hole, short of pulling the engine, what is a good fix? Any help appreciated, Wayne

Re: Oil leak

It is a common necessity to re-torque Oil Pans after an Engine has been run - especially when using After-Market Pans and Timing Covers as the Radius's may conflict and the Oil Pans take a Set. I suggest you clean around that Gasket locating Hole with a De-greaser (If necessary loosen the Pan and drop the front a touch), inject RTV into the hole and re-torque the entire Pan - That is before you think about pulling the engine ;o)

Re: Oil leak

Chrome plating leaks. As said, clean with lacquer thinner/BraKleen® and a good sealant, such as Mopar Black RTV, and let it set overnight to cure.

Re: Oil leak

X3, this happened to me when I built my 396. I threw out the repro pan and bought a NOS oil pan and all set....
