I have my suspension and exhaust torn down...and I decided to replace the oil pan while I'm this far. I'm using the 1-piece, blue felpro gasket. I have (17) of (18) bolts in-place...one bolt (driver's side, rear...the last bolt) is not matching up. By that, I mean that I can look through the oil pan hole, and see a slight offset from the block's screw hole.
Any ideas? Should I ignore this one bolt and re-assemble ... or should I take this thing completely apart and try again? or should I take the dremel to it?

Any recommendations are greatly appreciated. Oh...'82 Chev Camaro, 305 4bbl.
