 i second the use of hylomar.i use a silicone (permatex) to first "glue the gasket to pan. one the gasket is mated to the pan i set it down on a flat surface like glass and leave it overnight. i find that this takes up any of the undulations of the pan.i then use hylomar between the adhered gasket and the motor.i use a a couple of all thread studs about 2" long each side of the motor as temporary guides to help bring the pan into the correct place.

Why I never use and hate Right Stuff.  When you do get the pan off it will be a bitch getting the surfaces clean.  Use Hylomar next time.
