I take the little 90° grinder with a brown 3m surface disk and hit it {not grind it all off but make it rougher} and assemble with permatex right stuff in the corners

What about on chrome oil pan, with permadry one piece gasket (the one that says not to use sealer). Im just worried about it bubbling if it gets to hot and screwing up the seal. Thanks for the input

Chrome leaks. I haven't had one single chrome engine part that didn't leak. I had a chrome front cover on the 350 I dropped in y 86 Cutlass, it leaked. I took it off when I had to swap out the cam, sandblasted it, and painted it...no more leaks. I did the same thing with the front cover on the 440 in the Charger....blasted and painted it. At the very least, as stated, take a 3M surface disc, a 90 degree die grinder and scuff it up.

I scuff it a little with a sanding sponge. Enough to give the surface a little bite.

Paul, where do you get the Indian head stuff? I've been looking around up here and they look at me like I'm from a different planet. Guess I'll have to find a 60 year old parts guy who remembers it. Just lately I asked a parts guy for a Chevy rocker arm. He actually had to ask me where it was used. The engine maybe?

Good old Permatex, "Indianhead Shellac Gasket Cement" will stick to anything, including your Johnson if your hands are sticky and you gotta go pee!!

Brown bottle with a red top, usually sitting around the silicone in parts stores and rolls of gasket material

Indian head shellack has been arround for eon's and is a very good sealer being resistant to coolent/fuel/oil etc when fully dried/cured ,as Paul states it's GOOD STUFF.

I have seen it in all the auto parts stores in my area but the brown plastic bottles it comes in has white caps on them in NY state where i live a not red caps.

Thats what i use on intake end seals, I put a bead on then sit the intake with all bolts and just tap the intake and put the engine bag on and let it sit over night then torque the intake and it seals great - Can be hard to get intake off later but it seals great :D

Edit: Im talking about Right Stuff Gasket maker here in this post not Indian head
