Except that engine building (properly) is a labor intensive industry.  Who do you think does all the measuring and machining?  Little engine shop fairies?  Not to mention assembly, mock up and parts fitting.

At Woody's level you are not just paying for his labor but for his skill set as well.

I had that happen before, in my case it was the pan itself distorting as the bolts tightened.

Its Moroso sheetmetal pan.....Ive checked it and its straight. It doesnt leak around the pan edges......only around the pan bolts themselves.

Ultra BLACK 

Tried it.......I think my next step is to clean the surfaces real good and actually shoot some Black Death up in the threads.....maybe that will seal them up.

Old school trick I learned for those cases (and I see a few)...... get some small "o" rings the size of the pan bolts thread.... install them on the bolts, use ultra black or gray and look for the fiber material gasket over the cork one ...... LMK.

check the pan where the bolts go...from the inside flange..
when they get tightened they will distort some ..
mite need a slight tap back out or get another pan and try that
others use sealent...i've never liked to use it on trans..
but thats just me

Rich,

The only time I have seen Right Stuff not work was when there was oil residue on the surfaces where it was applied. Did you clean the serfices with brake or carb cleaner?
