    When using a silicone sealer, the assembly process should occur within 15 minutes after the sealer has been applied. After this time, the sealer may start to set-up and its sealing effectiveness may be affected.
  2. Apply a 0.25 in. (6mm) thick bead of silicone sealer to the junction of the rear main bearing cap and cylinder block junction of the front cover assembly and cylinder block.
  3. Position the oil pan gasket to the oil pan with sealing bends against the oil pan surface and secure with gasket adhesive.
  4. Position the oil pan on the engine block and install the oil pan attaching bolts. Tighten the bolts to 96-120 inch lbs. (11-14 Nm).
  5. Back off all of the bolts and retighten them.
  6. Install or connect the following:

    Install the lower engine/flywheel dust cover to the torque converter housing
