Yep, that's pretty much what I'm expecting. The OFHG was hard as a rock when I pulled it out. Tried to bend it and it just snapped.

Finally was able to get my pan gasket changed over the long weekend. My gasket looked the same. Rubber hard as plastic and crumbled the same. Did a time lapse video from my garage camera. Wish it only takes this long! Total about 3 1/2 days at about 7 hours a day.

Yeah that's a big job for sure. Loved seeing the Mrs and the dog out there providing emotional support.

Cool video! Nice work! Nothing like having a clean oil pan! Mine has not dripped a drop since replacing the gasket.

Three dogs, but the only one I got any support one was the female beagle. I was laying on the creeper when she came out and licked me all over the face. I think she thought there was something wrong with me.

Thanks. Huge job and we had very hot weather that weekend to make it even more enjoyable. But, no oil on the garage floor and coating the bottom of the truck is was worth it.

eh. my experience with lots of sealer on a gasket is that it means you have essentially three gaskets that can fail down the line. i'd be more interested in losing the gasket entirely than that.
