Oh, that's pretty.

Any reason you went with the high pressure pump instead of a high volume pump? Just curious.

Does that look right for the damper/ pulley. I might have to get a measurement and see or install the alt. and see if things line up.

Test fitting the Windage tray, oil pump pickup tube and oil pan. Had to bend the pickup tube to get right over 1/4" clearance from the bottom of the pan. The Windage tray ended up taking 3 washers under it and the bfh method ��

Clay from measuring pickup to pan clearance. I ended up at a little over 1/4" measuring the thinnest section of clay

Pan ready to go on. Grease on the rod bolts from when I was making sure the rods weren't going to hit the pan. I had to check with the oil pan gasket on, but no grease was rubbed off when I checked so I should have sufficient clearance. Ultra black sealant on all 4 corners right before I dropped the pan on

Oil pan is on and torqued to spec. I think that's good for now time to call it a night.

It warms my heart to see people check the little (but critical) details like pan to pickup clearance. Good job.

Looks like the damper is fully seated and lines up with the alternator after bolting it up
