I'm swapping an '85 oil pan into my '84 22R, since my original pan is pretty rusty, getting really thin, and all the POR15 paint I put on it 2 years ago is now peeling off. <IMG SRC="smilies/pissed.gif" border="0"> The front axle it out now anyway, so now's the time to do it.

The '84 pan uses a cork gasket, but the '85 uses FIPG. I already bought the gasket (FelPro), and I have a tube of FIPG. I was thinking of doing both, FIPG on the pan to hold the gasket. This should help the pan come off easily if I ever have to pull it again. Does this make sense?

I'd go for it...just as long as you don't use to much FIPG and it squishes inside the oilpan.

Either way will work Ken. Hell, FIPG the snot out of it and then you won't have to worry about it leaking <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

The FIPG stays pretty soft, so if you have a need to remove the pan in the future, it shouldn't be too much of a fight. Well, not too-too much <IMG SRC="smilies/laughing.gif" border="0">

Most Toyota mechanics I know don't even use the cork gaskets at all. They just use the FIPG. I use the FIPG on anything that I don't plan on taking a part on a regular basis (intake, oil pan...). That stuff seals much better than any paper or cork gasket.

i used it (FIPG)on the oil pan and on my hubs after i did the seal replacement job. works fine. they didn't have the paper seals at the dealership and they said the the pipg works better anyway! i wish i could have gotten gaskets for the hubs though but no one had them in town for the warn hubs. <IMG SRC="smilies/crybaby2.gif" border="0">
