I have a slight oil pan leak. Several bolts were loose especially near the rear of the engine. I snugged them up and it did not improve much. Am I looking at replacing the gasket or can it be loosened and torqued/tightened correctly to stop the leak? My guess is no. Im also looking for suggestions on gaskets/installation etc so it doesn't happen again. I have a ford racing oil pan
And a dart block.

Drop the pan and see if the pan lip is flat and true. I have had issues with stock pans being dented and warped from people over tightening pan bolts.. The FMS pan should be thicker. I have used the felpro 1 piece pan gasket. It works great with the alignment studs it comes with when installing with the motor in the car.

My mistake mentioning bolts, I have the Arp stud kit.
NA 347 solid roller motor. I have a catch can setup that hooks to both valve covers.

Not sure what brand motor mounts. They are Not solid.

The nuts loosened over time. I never retorqued them after installing the motor. I'm still learning, the hard way. Lol.

get a 1/4 drive torque wrench as it makes dealing with the small but yet critical bolts and studs, like the oil pan and intake, lot easier
