Do I need to pull it?

I have a 01 250 4x4 that I just put a new long block in about 5k ago. Put new oil pan on since I have 200k in NY on it. My caulk job seems to have failed center front under the oil pump and leaking pretty good. has anyone tried to redo this seal with out pulling the motor before?

you need to pull it because the motor has to sit upside down for 24 hours after the pan is put back on

The sealant does need 18-24 hours to cure however it doesn't care which way the motor is oriented.

I put the sealant on, put the pan on, snug all the bolts down by hand, then torque them all, and then install the engine. I just don't put fluid in for 24 hours.

No you're right. That's what it says... but I was just offering what I do that I've been successful with and Scott does the same thing. I used to leave it sit, but don't have time for that anymore.
