Q:

1) I've got a new IP gasket, but also think it's a bad idea to put this delicate OE version in because, well, the whole damned point of taking the IP out was to stop that oil-leak. Any reason...

Before I find out the tool I was about to order is for some reason not quite right for locking my '83 300SD pump (they call out "300D" but not "300SD") - can anyone verify? They cite "OEM 601 589...

the IP-to-timing-cover gasket change: shortcuts?

One of my more substantial oil-hemorrhages is from the three-bolt gasket between the IP and the back of the timing-cover, it appears. My oil's been drained for a few days, yet even without running...
