form a gasket ,,, lol that stuf is crap! you might as well just use some tooth paist if you are going to use form a gasket. dont try to be a cheap a-s when it comes to gaskets. it will bit you in the a-s in the long run. i think the gasket for the pan is 15,20 bucks and would be worth it cause you will be saving yourself from donig it a 2nd time .
yai got the ONLY one [aparently] in all of norcal from sacramento. i got lucky cause my dad was headin down there 2day. im puttin it in 2marrow @ work [i love workin @ a shop and getting paid to work on my own car] so i should have my car back 2marrow nite. so i have a question. whats the point of that little tray [if u will] belo the drain plug. it just hold old oil that cant drain out [i know not much but if that wasnt there then i wouldnt have 2 do this whole prossess so ya im a bit anoid @ it] not that i can do much about ford design but im still pissed. well thanx yall 4 ur responses
If I remember correctly from when I did the BSD there is a slight pocket in the bottom of the oil pan. Like there is a thin layer of metal, open space, and then the bottom of the oil pan right near the drain plug. I believe this is what he is talking about.
