Going to drop the oil pan and replace end seal Monday need some info

I went out and bought this: Fel-Pro Oil Pan Gasket OS30625R for an Automatic

Quote:
2001-1982 Ford V6 232ci 3.8L; 1995-1989 Ford V6 232ci 3.8L Supercharged; 2000-1995 Ford Truck Light Duty V6 232ci 3.8L; 2000-1997 Ford Truck Light Duty V6 256ci 4.2L; RTV Black silicone with Rubber end seal.
When I take the oil pan off where is the end seal going to be? How hard is it to replace? Is there anything else I should be looking out for?

... I am replacing the rear seal in the tranny.

The oil pan doesn't have a gasket on it, it has silicone.

you may use gaskets on oil pans.
in the first post you put oild pan gasket.
do you mean the seal that goes around the tail shaft or the gasket that mates the tail shaft housing to the tranny case, im not sure if the aod has the TS housing integral or not

I have no idea....

but they said that I just use the silicone on the oil pan before I put it back on and that they dont sell a actual gasket for it.

How much of a problem is it to take the tail shaft housing off?

4 bolts to take off the tail shaft housing, one at each corner. but it might be integral
you can use silicon on the oil pan , i just prefer using gaskets, rtv smells so horrible.
they should sell gaskets for the pan i have bought them before.
