Did anyone ever have a problem with the front pump gasket blowing out by the pump outlet.

I would be checking the case is flat and that the threaded holes are not pulled out around them .All to ensure the pump sits flat.

Yes, mine did . Then I found out two of the bolt holes were not helicoiled (stripped), and those two bolts were working their way loose. Helicoiled those two, and everythings fine now!

Ive blown them before and its a drag. JW transmission sells a "leak proof" C4 pump gasket. Never tried it but it might be worth checking out.

JPT also has a stronger high performance pump gasket.
