Well just like any 3 + month project, life usually goes on at the same time. I had planned to be out of town for the next couple weeks and the project is going to have to wait. So this is my last update for a while.

Coolant/oil pump housing bolted on, fresh gaskets, bolts, and orings everywhere.



Oil gears lubed up and new seals. There's a LNE billet hex pump driver behind those gears.



New ramps and hardware bolted in.



New oil seperators, gaskets, pickup tube, dipstick guide installed.



I started cleaning the oil pan. I will probably clean it again when I get back before bolting it on, there is still some old sealant that I need to work on.



L8R!

When it comes to removing the old sealant from that pan, I'd suggest trying a scotchbrite sponge (blue). I tried a variety of methods and this was the best by far. It took the sealant right off without damaging the light texture on that face. The red/brown scotch brite pads were too aggressive for my taste.

Thanks for the tip! I think I might try that out. I like the red/brown ones myself.

Agreed, the red/brown pads are awesome for heavy cleaning. I was just worried that I was removing the texture on the seal surface so I went with a lighter option.

You're in the home stretch so I'm sure the excitement is building... Good job!

To clean sealant do you use any product ? Or just scotchbrite dry ?

Acetone or paint thinner work great along with the scotch brite.

Stock 996, I might open up the baffles a little, perhaps when some funds come in along with a deeper sump kit.

I'm having trouble remembering. I think I just used IPA, but I might have used simple green first and then followed it up with IPA. I definitely finished with IPA to make sure I had no oily residue or contaminants on the surface.

Isopropyl alcohol.

Sorry, I'm used to working with science people and we always abbreviate it.
