Hello - quick question - is there a gasket between the block & the front cover on a 3116, or do they use a sealant?

!u8846 anaerobic gasket sealant is used between the block and the front housing. There is a gasket 7w6552 used along with sealant, between the front housing and the front cover. This was for a 9LN 3116 engine.

thanks for the help - have manuals on the way. Have tooling on the way as well, but got around the specialty tools for inj. sync. gov. set, and inj. timing. Now have to locate a rear seal installer for the hydrodynamic seal. Once I can get one to use, I will copy the dimentions & build one. I am located in Aruba, and it is difficult to get anything on this island - everything has to be imported, and the gov't has tax on everything LARGE.

Thanks again for the help,

Chris Craig
