This morning I started up my "new" engine and ran it for a few minutes, then I noticed oil on the engine pans. I forgot to use some goo on this.

Gasket made and installed, with Permatex. Now I can move on to whatever else I forgot.

This is the second time you forgot to put a gasket on. You are now grounded. Go to your room.

He's probably trying to figure out how to get the roof finished and that T put back together before the snow comes...thinking too much about the house whilst working on the auto...

Personally, I was never any good at multi-tasking....many are.

I hope he doesn't start shingling with the gaskets he has been forgetting. :-)

Steve,

Last time it was a water outlet gasket and sealer. This time it was the mag plug sealer. I would recommend that you get a reservation for a bed in "The Home" as soon as possible <grin>. :-)

I can honestly say that in about 35 years in this hobby I have never used sealer on a mag post gasket. If any of them had leaked I would have. Don't make reservations at the old folk’s home quite yet.

That happened to me last week. I had a good flow out the passenger side of the transmission cover when my rebuilt engine started on the starter for the first time.

I also had a problem with one of the four 4th Main bolts not wanting to start.

The cover had been taken off the other engine and set right side up on the floor.

The cover was again removed and turned over to look for cracks, etc.

There was a four inch piece of thick cork gasket stuck to the center of the passenger side of the cover and a 1/2 inch piece of that gasket material stuck to each back end section of the cover. They were scraped off and all the bolts fit together nicely then. The leak was gone too.
