Finally got the water pump replaced, just in time for the summer driving season. :thumbsup:
While underneath I noticed a lot of transmission fluid seeping onto the shop floor.:tisk: Closer inspection reviled some loose transmission pan bolts, no problem, tighten’em up, good to go…not quite! I also discovered transmission fluid seeping at the diff. Inspection cover gasket. Some time ago someone globed orange silicone on it to seal it up.:bigroll: OK no problem buy a new gasket, cant be over 5 bucks right….wrong! Can’t locate a replacement gasket anywhere!!! WTF? It’s a inspection cover gasket that was used from 1978 thru 1985 Cadillac FWD's and there are none to be found? :rant2:I’m not a big fan of using silicone in lew of gaskets. Any one know of a source?[/Q
