Nope don't think so. Pretty sure that's a crush type.

What happened? Vac, exhaust, coolant leaks?

I always changed it as I was shown as a kid and was told it's a crush type & you can only use it once so don't jack it up.

Slight coolant and oil burn. They are crush type. I had to tear off my manifold and do it all over again. Not fun.

Get a new one. They're cheap and they're single use only.

Yeah, since it is not just a valley pan but also the manifold gaskets, change it. I have my new one here in the box from BJs and as soon as my GW gets back home the four barrel intake and carb is going on it.

Is this a new intake? What part number is it? If it's for an early AMC the center bolt holes may need to be slotted.

I also used just the valley pan and a little RTV around each port. Don't use the rubber end gaskets, either. Just use RTV.

You have to "seat" a new valley pan a bit. Start a couple of bolts on one side, then tap the other side down with a rubber mallet until you can start some bolts on that side.

When I did mine, I didn't use any gasket other than the valley pan IIRC. I did use some red RTV around the ports and I put a slight bend in the valley pan where I could insert the pins and not have it spring out and get RTV everywhere. Also, don't use the end seals that come with a new valley pan gasket as they will slip bad. Edelbrock recommends using RTV on the ends. I put a nice 1/4" bead of Ultra Black and it works good. Make sure you get the bead in the corners real good. I laid it on much like a weld should look ensuring it was uniform across the surface and would have enough on the top of the bead to get good contact when I set the manifold down. I had no issues with bolts as I was super careful laying the manifold in straight down. I let the RTV set awhile before torquing the bolts all the way down to get a good squish.
