The windage tray is held on with grade 8 bolts. Use locktite red and torque to 15 ft lbs.
Did you swiss cheese your windage tray with about twelve 1/4" holes? This really helps oil drain back to the pan.
What type of gasket are you going to use on the oil pan on the back part of the oil pan to rear main cap? I like the square cork type. I like to wrap it around a small can overnight to take a round shape. Then I glue it on with Permatex High Tack sealant. The red stuff in white bottle comes with a brush on the cap. I also use this on the pan rail side gaskets to block. Then I coat the gaskets with a small amount of RTV sealant before putting the pan on. Once the pan is bolted on leave it for 24 hours.
