The installation went somewhat smooth, when you get the last 20 years of oil off,lol. I had two gaskets for the oil pump, opted for the felpro. Also, I've saw write-ups suggesting rtv for the RMS, no! I went with the anaombic sealant, worth it, and soaked the gasket itself with new oil as long as you can. No leaks total success!
Pick-up tube.. Yeah we don't talk about it, lol. All jokes aside it was the most physically exerting thing about the job. Especially, when your a quarter of the way in, and you realize "hey, I shoulda lubed this thing a bit." That's what she said lmao
Finally got my front axle treated and painted with por15, ( which takes like 3 days to come off, or rub off rather) shocks on, track bar on. Which that was a real task. After I got a jack under the axle she began manipulating it, finally it cooperated.
