1 If applicable (ie. the engine has been dismantled), refit the crankshaft rear oil seal and housing.

2 Clean the mating faces of the sump and cylinder block.

3 Locate the new gasket on the block (see illustration) then fit the sump. Insert the sump bolts and tighten them evenly in diagonal sequence to the specified torque. If required, the two bolts at the flywheel end of the sump can be replaced by socket-headed bolts to facilitate their removal with the engine in the vehicle. Note that the tightening torque for the replacement bolts is 8 Nm (6 Ibf ft).
