Thanks, George. I was going to say the same thing.
That said, as you all know, I restored my 1964 sedan to Factory Stock class, which meant I had to use the early style pan and gasket. They were both installed about 15 years ago and I still have yet to see any leaking from the pan, so the early style "can" work properly, so long as you are very careful to avoid over-torquing the bolts and distorting the pan.

Good info. Not sure that anyone missed anything though, as the topic was
centered around the oil pan, and I don't remember seeing any questions
about the gaskets. Not saying it isn't germane to the topic either.
Eagerly awaiting the International Convention.
