Have you tried different gaskets? sometimes the o ring in a steel washer seals well

Current one is hangs a drip every once and awhile. Engine was built with Summit G3536 oil pan and Melling pick up 72-S2

This drain plug is about 1/2 longer. It is going to work without interfering with the pickup?

Thanks much!

I always put a thin bead of RTV around the plug right where the threads meet the sealing washer. (after I dry the plug off well of course)
Dry as a bone every time.

Of course I understand that some people have an aversion to using RTV on anything.

I will try either solution (a little 1/8 RTV or this newer drain plug. It is on my new tans pan and not a drip.) I have tried nylon gaskets as well and they leak worse.

Thanks.
