Re: Changing the Oil Pan Gaskets
Virgil & Sue Klein
I would agree with you that once you have the pan off you might as well replace the rear seal. I think the ’54s had some issue with that rear seal leaking. I looked up rear seal installation in my ’54 shop manual and it appears there is a need for a special tool to seat the seal into the grooves properly. Not sure where you could purchase such a tool but I would check with FelPro for help. Maybe someone else has replaced that seal without the tool and can post on the website. Good luck.
