As I continue to try to make my "new" '91 as bullet-proof as possible with a long list of maintenance and OEM+ additions, I spent time reading the long threads about the oil pan gasket. Mine is leaking and I'm putting on exhaust headers, so why not address it now? My pan is slightly dented (see pic), which I gather can induce a leak with an out-of-plane lip. It doesn't appear I can find a replacement easily, and a baffled pan from Mita is more than I want to spend. I also worry that trying to hammer it flat once removed might only make things worse. Thoughts?
