    Well in the process of rebuilding my engine the past couple of weeks and a few things i learned which made it much easier that i haven't seen posted anywere yet...

    If you take the two covers off the bottom of the tranny bellhousing it is easier to get the oilpan on and off.

    Second i got the dreaded 4 piece Felpro gasket...and what i did is just glue it to the oilpan in place with some weather strip adhesive....then i just put the pan on. No fighting with gasketsor anything..had to take the oil pan off after i had it all bolted again and it came off and went back on no problem...oh and this was all takin place inside the truck.
