Oil Pan Gasket

Hi everyone. I have a '99 SH I'm going to put cylinder sleeves in and rebuild. I noticed a while ago that my oil pan was leaking a bit so I got a Magnum Maxdry rubber gasket that got good reviews, I prefer an actual gasket over sealer any day. Yesterday I was holding it up to the engine block and it looks like everything matches, there are a few more holes for the pan bolts so it might be universal with the H22/H23/F20. I start reading about pan gaskets on these H22a4 engines and everyone says to glue it, no gasket other than the tiny one at the crank. My question is, has anyone put a gasket on these engines? All the holes match, dimensions look right, why should I not use the gasket? Thanks

Re: Oil Pan Gasket

I was able to use a FEL-PRO oil pan gasket when I had my clutch done. The part number I used was OS 30632 R oil pan gasket, check their website its, pretty good website for ordering parts

Re: Oil Pan Gasket

Thanks for the reply. I bought the gasket a while ago when I was just going to fix the leak. I took all the bolts out of the pan expecting it to drop but then I learned about Hondabond. I pried on the pan and hit it with my mallot but never got it to move, since it's aluminum I didn't try forcing it. I gave up after some time and put it back together. Since then I've decided to turbo my car which means sleeves and a rebuild. If possible, I would like to use gaskets rather than glue so I don't have to fight things if something goes wrong. Yesterday I was looking at the gasket box and noticed it said its for 90-97 2.2, 98-02 2.3 and 92-96 2.3. I don't know how I didn't see this when I bought it. That's when I laid it on my block and saw that the holes line up. Hopefully I can use this gasket and not run the risk of a leak, it's a nice looking gasket. Thanks

HondaBond FTW.
K-series aluminum oil pans use HB for pan sealing too and works totally fine. I've been k-swapped since 04, no problems with sealing the pan with HB, stuff is awesome.
