I’m under my car chasing some minor annoying oil leaks and there is one from the oil pump bypass. I have a complete Best gasket kit and assumed the plug gasket was copper but there was not any copper gaskets in the kit. There are quite a few very hard paper style. Is this what I should use.
None of the manuals show the style. Illustrations show a “gasket”’.. Thanks

have a kit that targets oil leaks at the rear of the oil pan. a precision plate that covers the back of the pan, and around the oil pump. it includes a thicker pan gasket of a more dense than most kits. the plate clamps the raised dimples of the pan and the 6 rear cap screws,also some tips on plugging the top of the retainer cap screws giveing a better seal in this aria. the plate is water cut, the gasket is longer at the rear to improve leak elimination.  2longer studs aswell as longer capscrews and washerswill send pictures any interested. just send your email.cost is 90.00 plus frt. ct1940@shaw.ca

Thanks, I believe I’ve found most of the problems. They were the oil pump bypass gasket and the sleeve donut on the feed line it was off 5 years ago and not replaced. The leak at the “rear main” was and has been very minor. There was no sealer at the spacer edges as I’ve read is needed; there is sealant there now. The side seals had the nails so it may have been a Best brand. It is all back together. At 76 I have no business under a 50’s car removing a pan. I needed to to make a permanent fix of something that was done 5 years ago and I believe I have done that.
