Greetings all. Chasing down some minor oil leaks as mentioned in other threads. In this case I'm replacing the oil pan gasket. I have the pan itself, as well as the block mating surface clean as a whistle. I have the appropriate gasket which I am to understand does NOT use any kind of sealant. Makes sense. BUT - what about the screws? The holes aren't blind - they go right up into the oil reservoir. I would think oil would work it's way down the threads. I did see telltale oil drips on the hex head screws when I took it apart. Should I be using a sealant? Or a steel/rubber washer? I haven't seen mention of this anywhere but when I was having a tech day, the local Air Marshal said to use sealant on two particular screws. But it's more than two that aren't blind. I'm thinking I need to, at minimum, use thread sealant on all the screws. Also, I ordered a stainless hardware kit from Hucky. Nice for most applications elsewhere on the bike but I'm not 100% sure about using the oil pan screws. And especially the split lock washers vs the solid washers that are OEM. Any pointers are appreciated.
