It is sealed on pretty good. I have all bolts off except rear two. I banged the crap out of it with a rubber mallet..nothing..

Ford use to use a sealant on their pans that pretty much caused the destruction of the pan apon removal.
That stuff was tough!
Glad you didn't have to!
Can I use a wire brush on pan and bottom of Auto to remove gasket debris?

My mess. Not sure why they didn't put a drain plug on this thing. I hope to never have to do this again.

Never could figure out why autos don't have drain plugs.
As far cleaning, I prefer a single edge razor blade, but a wire brush will work.
And put some rtv on pan with gasket on top to keep it in place? I shouldnt need any inbetween gasket and transmission?

I am not going to lie. That was a B word getting the pan back on. I accidently rub rtv off the pan on the drive shaft when trying to carefully get it in between skid plate and muffler. Hopefully I didnt jack it up too much. If there is a next time I will be doing it the long way and getting the skid plate off.
