oil pump driveshaft installation ?
i'm having a problem installing the oil pump driveshaft. i've already sealed up the oil pan, and im wondering if its possible to install the driveshaft now?
also, what is the clip for on the driveshaft?
(and why doesnt the haynes manual not mention any info about this driveshaft anywhere ! :evil:
i thought when the engine was upside down and i tried to install the driveshaft it would just fall out, but i guess i just have no idea here.
and since it looks like i'll be taking the pan off again, my haynes manual says install the end seals first, then lay the cork side gaskets over them.
a link on another thread to a mustang monthly magazine build showed those guys laid the cork side gaskets down first and then the rubber end seals over the top of the side gaskets? which way is really right? I installed the end seals first, then the side gaskets, and i noticed the thin edges that lay down on the block at the end of the rubber end seals were squishing out away from the block... but i put rtv under it, over it, and beside it so i don't think i'd have had a leak but I'm not sure?
hope you guys can make sense out of any of that.
thanks guys !
