Hello everyone,

So I few years ago, my shift linkage in the tranny came loose. I took my TH350 pan off and tightened the nut inside the trans. Put it back together no leak no issues. A few months later it came loose again, nothing a little locktite couldn't fix. When I put it back together my pan leaked. Then leaked again, and again. Mind you I have never had an issue with pan gaskets in the past. Made sure it wasn't anything else, put an aluminum pan on it, still leaked. Moroso reusable gasket, still leaked. Granted leak may be a strong word, but I like my stuff sealed up like a drum. I was resigned to just live with it when I loaned my driveshaft to sparky. Since my car would be down I figured I would try one last time. I got a gasket called lube locker. It was pricey, like $26 bucks. It is thin, I think has a shim between two fiber layers, and 2 silicone beads that run round on both sides. You get a different "feel" when tightening, I feel like I am tighter than I would normally go.

Long story short, finally no leak..... at all. So if anyone out there has tried it all, give this a try, LubeLocker.

I hope this helps someone else's sanity.

I'll second that!

Brand new Moser 12 bolt rear end.... 972 miles later, gear oil drips on the shop floor.... One Lubelocker rear cover gasket later, dry as a bone. Manufacturing technology is a good thing....

Apparently they don't sell a gasket for a 10 bolt 8.2" differential. Or at least I couldn't find one.

Had a customer bring his Jeep to my shop for a set of gears front and rear. He supplied the gears and lube locker gaskets. I was impressed with the gasket. Definitely worth the money.
