its a tough job... not tough in any one part of the job, but getting everything together with the two-piece drain going into place properly is a real challenge.

It just takes time. Put on some good music and dont have a need to go anywhere, else itll really stress you out.

did mine twice on my 83 300D, and there was still a leak. Cleaning the flange on the turbo is a real tough job because there is little precious space, especially if your hands are large... I think when it was done previously, it must have been gouged, because I could never get it to feel really smooth...

Be careful with that!
