I ordered the Toyota oil pan gasket, and it seems like the humps are about a quarter of an inch to big. Are they supposed to fit like that? Did I get a bad gasket? I posted in a thread last night but didn't get any response, need to know pretty quick if I've got to order a new gasket

That would make a lot of sense. However; it Doesnt seem likeit can compress that much in the hump portion of the gasket without it going out of the hump in the pan, but I'll give it a shot when ofer home

Yes it seems they are too big, but yes they compress well enough when installed. Put a glob of RTV in each of the 4 corners where the bearing caps meet the machined flat oil pan sealing surface.

I find it easier to fit the gasket to the block with somePermatex, and then fit the pan. Otherwise it seems like the "u" things are too long.

Not sure I recall this right, but aren't there two different OEM pan gaskets? One style for the original pan, and a different style to fit the factory replacement pan?

(Just make sure you do NOT get the multi-piece aftermarket type!)
