[DML] Re: oil pan gasket removal



I agree it "ain't easy". With technique and skill it can be done. The
damage done is usually not all that bad and can be smoothed out with a
file and using silicone sealer with the new gasket. The better
alternative would have been to reuse the old gasket, leaving it in
place and siliconing the pan back onto it. When I did my turbo I had
the chance to replace the gasket or reuse it. I chose to reuse it and
it is not leaking. Taking a peek was OK, he just should have tried to
reuse the gasket.
