Engine block assembly
Quick request of opinions:

Would you use gasket sealer on the rear crankshaft cover and the oil pump assembly flanges (along with the OEM gaskets of course)?

Cheers!

Depends if the surface is nice or not.

Well, I have sanded the surfaces with fine grit paper, so they are pretty smooth...

Scrape off the old gasket, get it sanded with 400, worked fine for me Smile
Are you using paper or metal gaskets? I never really trusted the metal ones if the surface wasn´t mint!

Contact areas are prepared for assembly. I will be using the OEM metal gaskets from the rebuild kit. The question is whether to use also gasket sealer (high pressure/temperature) or not. The manual does not mention use of sealer so I thought I'd ask here for opinions.

If you use the metal gaskets I´d put a litte sealant on it, as said before, you´ll definatly regret if your engine leaks after a few km´s...

Just beware you don't use too much of the sealer.
It can damage, if the sealer goes on places you don't want to have it.
