Also what kind of gasket you prefer for rear main seals on the motor
The rubber with a metal core are the best. The metal keeps them from squirting out from under the cover like plain rubber gaskets tend to do.
The rear main seal is just a metal ring with a rubber wiper/seal in it. Not a lot of choices there other than manufacturer.
