any suggestions ??Replaced headgasket today, although not finished putting everything back.
1) In my headset with all the parts/gaskets there is a Rubber Strip for the Timing Cover.
Where does this go, as my car didn't have one & not sure where it should go ??
I'm now reassembling everything.
The retainer plate for the oil pump gear is sticking up, it doesn't look right.
I''m not sure why it's doing that as the assembling is very simple.
I took before/after photos during the headgasket change of the oil pump gear assembly.
See photos, any ideas why it's doing that & if it's wrong ??
Ps: why does this forum do Automerge Doublepost on different messages !!??
It's annoying messages on 2 different subjects are merged.
