All that work I did fixing my cam chain hassles I went through a couple of months ago left me with another gnarly oil leak. ... that 261C cam is pretty sweet.
Oil pans do not like to be applied with impact guns, they prefer the old school hand applied torque method. How do I know this because the two holes in the very front of the pan where the bolts go into the timing cover got dimpled which in turn pinched and split my gasket, again. I took the pan off after dinner on Sunday and used my ball peen hammer to fix those dimples then put a layer of FIPG on the pan then put on the gasket and applied more FIPG to the top of the gasket then used my hand ratchet to slowly spin the bolts in. I hate doing things manually but, 3 oil pan gaskets was 2 too many so manual install it was.I do not need a torque wrench, I know the correct torque when I feel it so today for the 1st time since before the cam chain was installed, we are finally once and for all really 100% oil leak free.
I cannot tell you how many issues I've seen with 22RE engines and sleeves eating crank seals
