Angry Derale Cooling Trans PAN a POS.

OK I for the most part usually try to be civil with stuff but let me tell you after 4 hours of trying to get this POS trans pan not to leak I want to get on a plane, fly to the guys house who made and beat the SOB in the face with it until the coroner needs dental records to ID the corpse. What a POS. I should have learned form the old small block chevy days. You look at those nice chrome Moroso Valve cover and say "I want those" but you aint got the money and you buy the cheap ones and the leak leak leak. Same here. This is the worst made POS I have seen since those days. 4HRS taking it on and off, trying different gaskets, Trying High Tack and finally Aviation Perma tex which we all know would seal the Titanic, Nothing work. fluid literally ran out of the mating surface. Finally took another gasket with no sealer, put the factory pan back on, no leak,. If you eye ball this thing you can see how warped it is. A total piece of worthless [email protected]#t. DO NOT BUY IT. And yes TD I know you have one which is where I got the idea, but I think you got lucky. What a total waste of time not to mention I stripped one of the trans pan bolts from taking it on and off so many times. It was the only part of the truck that didn't leak. Old saying, if it aint broke , don't fix it!!
OK Rant over.

I just hate to see anyone go through what I did unless mine was a fluke.

Raise hell with the company, perhaps it may just be your pan, if not try to get your money back.
