Interesting...I test fitted one on my son's '73 Manta engine today and it seemed to fit perfectly in the grooves of the timing cover and on the back near the rear seal. Where did it pop out that you had to trim it, Bob? I only held it in place briefly as I have to finish cleaning up the mounting surface. I notice the gaskets have a little extra material at the corners where you normally have to put a dab of sealant to prevent leaks...was that where it was popping out on you? Similar to what you recommended, I plan to use a light film of permatex gasket maker on it just to hold it in place (car is on a lift, and motor is still in car). It looks like it will snug up super tight when the pan goes on. I'll try to get some photos if I encounter similar issues to what you experienced.I have one installed, but also not fired yet.
My only notation was that I needed to trim one area of the pan rail section to fit into the timing cover recess. It kept popping out otherwise.
I can take some pics and post them later on.
HaroldFormulated specially for rubber gaskets, it conditions gaskets for longer life and seals potential leak paths. It also functions to hold gaskets in place during installation. The non-hardening, soft-setting formula makes gasket repositioning quick and easy. Provides outstanding oil and fluid resistance. Temperature range -65°F to 400°F (-54°C to 204°C). - See more at: Gasket Sealants : Permatex® Ultra Rubber Gasket Sealant & Dressing
