hi and thx for your reply. in my haste to remove and repair i forgot to write down the

different flange bolt lengths and where these different length go in the tranny cover

is it ok to use silicon sealer on the different o-rings?

For O rings, just lube and install. No silicon.

Agree. If you use a sealant then for some reason have to take it back apart then you will need new seals. If no sealant is used odds are very high you can reuse them once or twice.

hi i'm at a loss. the new oil pump seal does it remain in place static, when the water pump shaft spins?
my new one [seal] turns with the water pump shaft. i removed the old oil seal [had to cut it out] there is a metal backing that the seal sat on that is still in place. i thought maybe the tranny cover would squash the new seal holding it so it does not spin but that does not stop it.
is this normal?

hi am having trouble cleaning the old gasket material from the main water pump seal
could i remove the housing that holds that seal? the housing has 2 10mm flange bolts
and 2 phillips head screwdrivers. would be a lot easier to clean on the bench. does it
need special gaskets? have tried to reference the part but can't seem to find part for
reference.

thx gumby
