finally got the cover off
I got the cover off last night after removing the front axle. It was a good thing. The rail on the r/h side was worn severely. I also discovered several pieces of the old rails inside. I have another quick qestion. Since I have the oil pump off, would it be good preventitive maintainence to replace it? The car has 175,000 mile and I do not wand to go through this again anytime soon. Also, part of the head gasket came off on top of the cover. do I nee to replace the whole head gaket or can I seal it with a sealer?
thanks in advance,
