Default I don't need no stinking torque wrench for a Trans pan gasket!

Thought I'd share.
Changed my transmission filter last weekend. Cleaned the pan and old permatex off (there was no gasket installed). Although, there was a gasket that came with the filter, I schmeared some red permatex on the pan and gasket, reassembled pan to transmission....and the second I finished I knew I had screwed up....over-tightened gasket. It was destroyed.....should have bought a torque wrench damn it. Besides that, there was no way I was gonna wait 24 hours for the permatex to dry before filling with fluid....I have work the next day.
It was late on a sunday afternoon, and even though there are no blue laws in california, the city in which I live closes up about 6. I watched a video made by Permatex. They have a product called The Right Stuff...$13, but it was worth it. No gasket needed and you can refill and put vehicle back into service immediately.

Good to know...
I had to look up what a "Blue Law" was...

We used to in Massachusetts but eventually it has been pretty much eliminated. Stores staying open later and liquor stores open. Pretty much dissolved. It nice now in case you are a victim of something breaking on a Sunday or holiday. Murphy must be mad though, but he still manages to apply his law in other manners.

The advent of the ATM certainly helped encourage businesses to stay open.

You still cannot buy any alcohol products until after noon here in Texas. And there many small towns that most things are closed on Sunday's and even Monday as well. Back when, barber shops and restaurants were closed on Mondays too.
On Sunday's you could buy hammers but not nails, screwdrivers but not screws, wrenches but not bolts/nuts, etc. the Sunday day of rest and worship.
When I was a kid Sunday was church, tune salad lunch and an afternoon drive to get out there, then home for Ed Sullivan on the tube.
