    I've used 3M # 8001 YELLOW adhesive on my aluminum pan with a cork gasket and had no problems at all .

    Use a duraphrene (a type of paper)gasket on a dry and flat pan and trans surface and use a torque wrench. Using sealant on a cork gasket will cause it to split at the bolt holes.Using yellow snot will cause you to cuss when time to change the fluid next time.  Lot of newer cars are using reusable gaskets.They need be checked closely for cracks and tears especially around the bolt holes befor reuse.Again put on dry and on a flat pan and "use a torque wrench".

    I'd say chuck that cork gasket into the garbage.Torque the bolts to 120 inlbs/ 10 ftlbs

         Duraprene  , dry ,  10 ft lbs .    If pan rail is straight it will seal .

    if you ar using the gasket--just use some axle grease to hold in in place and install it.

    Sam, the Fel-Pro gaskets, composite type, are slightly undersized at the bolt holes purposely to hold the gasket in place while installing. It does work well if you are going to  use a gasket. As others said throw the cork away. Your call.

    Jake makes a good point .    with the  "good"  gasket   .  put a bolt on each end and  on each  side  through the pan and gasket  before you mount the pan .   This holds the gasket in place  .   Snug the bolts  just enough to hold the pan in place  The other bolts are easy .   


    You will be so happy you could almost  whiz on yourself  . . . . . . . .     wink

    The neoprene(rubber type) gaskets do the same as cork and squish out at the bolt holes.Had a car in here yesterday with that problem,

    The Fel-Pro composite gasket is designed so you can thread all the bolts into the gasket. With about two threads above the gasket you can hold the pan up to the transmission and start them with your fingers, bolts will not fall out and the gasket stays in place--works slick. As said, just don't over tighten them and tighten them in a criss-cross pattern, should have no problem.
