    the factory oil pan gasket is riveted to the pan in two places. you are going to have to raise the motor to get the pan and gasket out. the gasket is an aluminum with rubber impregnated onto it. be extra careful as not to break the tiny, long rear oil pan bolts. they only need 106 inch pounds of torque. the rest are 12 ft-lbs.
