HELP
Never had a stock pan leak before. This last engine I built a year ago, I used a New offy aluminum pan with thick paper gasket.No leak til a month ago. Checked bolt torque, good, so I changed the gasket, gasketcinched both sides, and leaks towards front of pan.Pulled pan and aluma checked with penetrant and developer. All good, no dings on pan anywhere.Re-installed as before, except with rubber cork gasket.2 days later (sitting) softball size puddel. now seeping from side.
Checked surface with straight edge, ok

Use thread sealer on the 7 front bolts.
