  1. So I should take it off clean it and redo it huh? 🙃
  2. So when I put the bead of RTV on there I swear it didn’t look like that much. But I just screwed myself trying to get the front cover off now.
  3. Yea the RTV was a little excessive
  4. So I am completely off and have to reposition it
  5. Anyone got any tips or tricks to get the shaft at 11:25 position. I’ve been on this thing for about 2 hours now. https://imgur.com/a/q3jB0D0
  6. If I am using an oil pan gasket? for the front cover i used the grey permatex sealer and sealed the bottom where the block meets the front cover. I didnt use RTV for the front cover. https://www.amazon.com/Permatex-82194-High-Torque-Silicone-Gasket/dp/B000HBGI8K/ref=asc_df_B000HBGI8K/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=312097317052&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=12910803986040678698&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9031090&hvtargid=pla-437600037492&psc=1&tag=&ref=&adgrpid=57631863970&hvpone=&hvpt
  7. Is the main seal better? I pushed it back as far and the cap is sitting a little different now.
  8. Alright how is this looking? Also the seals I ordered on zcardepot have a pin in them already but I used the removable one also. Is that a problem? You can see two metal pins in one of the pictures. https://imgur.com/a/zQgePFa
  9. so the book, the how to rebuild your datsun engine with Tom, is really unclear on this step, because the pictures he doesnt have them going in all the way flush. what is the best way to install these seals? should i press the seals in the grooves after the RTV and then press the metal in?
  10. Yea i bought new seals and just got them today, the picture i sent is the new seals. Ill redo it again.
  11. so I put them in without the rTV to measure how far they go down and they barley stuck out. I put a bead of rtv in the grooves. So what I should do now is push the metal pin down more in order to razor blade the tops of the seals so they are flush? Just want to make sure I do this right
  12. So is this good to go? I can’t get the seals to go all the way flush. https://imgur.com/a/gKHvWAA
  13. You just saved me from a nervous breakdown. Thank you.
  14. So I have already put RTV in it before and they won’t go down anymore. Can I take off the rear main cap without messing up the crank measurements and all that?
  15. That’s what I was thinking but the book has then sticking out
