Slowly

I flipped the engine and started to put the pan on. This is a Gen. IV engine block with a two-piece seal adapter installed. This requires a Gen V gasket that has to be modified to fit the pan. I have always been bothered by leaks. The diaper towels have served to keep the oil off the track, but it is a pain to keep changing the diaper towels. This time, I am paying special attention to all the places where I think the oil could be coming out. Not that I have not done this in the past, but this time I am using Ultra Gray everywhere, and then some.

I put the oil pump and the shaft that drives it from the distributor. Tomorrow I will finish the pan install and then start on the lifters, push rods and rockers. As I said before, I hope I have all the correct length push rods for this cam.
