It does. The rings are the reason the newer oil pans don't have the raised edges on them. I think they're a type of compression ring.

Oh, speaking of which, as such, be sure to use the torque specs for an 89+ oil pan instead of the setting for your '81.


Nice find on those pins. I wouldn't have had any idea what to call them. For $5, they'd be nice to get just for the headaches they alleviate.

Outstanding. And reps to you, A.Bronco. I'm returning the Victor Reinz gasket, as it was $38, plus $5 for the SnapUps. Auto Zone can order me the Fel-Pro version for $23, SnapUps included - a $20 savings. Heck, that'll buy a half-gallon of gas.

So ... Who's got the torque specs for a 1989 oil pan?

From what I'm seeing online, Victor Reinz are some pretty high quality gaskets. But, the Felpro is trusted and works great, so why pay the $20 extra? That's an expensive gasket!

My manual says:

Pre-90: 10 - 15 ft/lbs.
90+: 15 - 18 ft/lbs.

Thanks buddy. Just doing my best to help. Hopefully your gasket swap goes well!
And good on you for looking into the one piece gasket, you'll love how much better it is.

After eight months and a LOT of other projects, I'm delighted to report the successful installation of the one-piece gasket on my '81 inline 6-300.

I did a step-by-step on my build thread in the 80-86 forum; it starts on page 46.

Thanks again for all the input; I wouldn't have attempted it otherwise.

That was a nice writeup! Looks like you've done some really nice work to that truck. Great stuff.

That 1 piece gasket sure is the way to go! I'll never put in a 4 piece cork gasket again.
