Put the gasket on the block with the rtv, and tighten a few screws. MAKE SURE THE GASKET IS FULLY SEATED IN THE REAR MAIN BEARING CAP. Otherwise it will leak. Let it sit a day. Come back the next day, take the screws out, put some rtv where it says to on the oil pan, and paste that sucker on there.

*really important* make sure the block and oil pan are absolutely clean around the edge. Brake cleaner and a lot of scrubbing.

I think that's only in the state of California..
