FE 390 Timing Cover Alignment to Pan and Gasket

Issue: 390 FE Timing Chain Cover and Oil Pan & Gasket Alignment

Background: Rebuilding a 1967 FE 390 that will eventually go into 1973 F-350 (Currently has a FE 390)

I was wondering if anyone had ran across the issue of the bottom of a time chain cover (TCC) not aligning with front of a 6-qt (Canton part number: 15-850) Canton oil pan and Fel-Pro Gasket. The issue is that 16 out of the 20 oil pan bolts align correctly to the block itself. The remaining 4 bolts are off alignment with the base of the TCC. The odd part is that the holes in the pan and the gasket align perfectly correct to each other but they both overlap part of the hole on the TCC.

In essence, in order to align the TCC to the other two parts it would require a spacer or thicker TCC gasket to have the TCC protrude out slightly more and line up correctly.

Has anyone else run across this issue and how has it been resolved?

Thanks

I'm assuming you don't have another stock pan to check alignment with?

Gasket thickness

They make two different gaskets for the timing cover, one thin and the other thick. I'm not sure on part number but Fel Pro makes a thick gasket for this. I have found both in a master Fel Pro engine kit. I'm sure it can be had individually.
