What's the best oil pan gasket for a 67 200. It's leaking by the alternator.

Felpro oil pan gasket set.
Make sure the oil pan bolt holes are not dimpled. To fix that you need to flatten them from the oil pan mating surface with a hammer.
I use grey permatex at all four corners where the rubber seals meet the cork gaskets.
Bolt the pan down & if the above is done correctly you will be leak free.

I clamped the edge between two pieces of 1x2. It doesn't deform the dimple at the holes and gets you a straight edge. You can saw it off for the ends of the pan. The other thing is to put it upside down on a piece of plywood to get a flat surface so the lip isn't twisted out of flat. And gasket sealer.
