60 Series 2H oil pan sump - gasket or sealant?

Unread post by Redrig60 » July 11th, 2018, 6:29 pm

Hi all I just purchased a cork gasket for the oil pan on a 2H and it looks like a pain in neck to do, so I was doing some research and found lots of people just use RTV with no gasket at all. I only took it off because I replaced the rear main seal and was worried the sump wouldn't bond and seal properly again. Anyway's, that's how the sump came off in the first place, just gray RTV and no gasket. It didnt leak at all either before any work started, so now I'm wondering do I even bother with this gasket or not?
