3M weather strip adheasive works great to hold the gasket to the new pan. I would not use Fipg on the pan to cork surface it is too slippery and will allow the gasket not to align properly. You will need a hand with the 3M or be good with the process so the cork aligns up properly. I then only use FIPG or similar in the corners of the cork where the block meets the arch.
In removing the pan, if it has been on a long time a propane torch works great to heat the pan and release the cork. I do not know if just using FIPG or slimilar is a great idea in place of the cork. Also when bolting the pan up, do not over tighten the bolts. It is best to stick to the torque setting or be gentle until you heat up the pan after the oil is installed and the engine is warm. the go again adn tighten the bolts and do not squish the gasket (can cut it by tighting it too much). good luck younster. later robbie
