So if I were to get it slightly too thick, would it squeeze out the excess? You mentioned previously that the oilplan would take about two coats on both mating surfaces correct?

Thank you both for your help, I am very appreciative

Generally on the oil pan toung you need a thin coat on the cover and a slightly thicker on the pan. All the rest is thin both sides. Excess will squeeze out but is to be avoided. Using an acid brush with the bristle length reduced by 1/2 and if that is making too thick of a coat dip brush in acetone so you get some application thinning. The thickness of 2 sheets of 20LB paper is what thin looks like.

Yes, slightly uneven layers would squeeze out.

Putting it on both surfaces is a good and highly recommended best practice but probably not absolutely necessary. That said, I would put it on both surfaces 100% of the time.

From what I recall OldNuc telling me (nearly a decade ago now ), one of the things you want to do is look at the surfaces on which you have put the Hylomar. If you missed cleaning a spot on one of the surfaces or it gets contaminated after cleaning, you will see that the Hylomar does not spread and lay on it properly. That gives you a chance to fix it before putting it together only to have it leak on you.

The other thing putting it on both surfaces does, is if one of the surfaces is imperfect, you have a layer of Hylomar filling it before assembly (instead of hoping there is enough on the other surface to fill it)

ahh think Ive gotten my head wrapped around this Hylomar stuff now, thank you for the advice ^ .^

Well I put the head on and followed OldNucs post to the letter. The only thing I'm slightly hesitent on is that the #1 bolt might be a smidge under 90 or exactly on it. Guess we'll see in another year and a half x) I'll have an actual torque angle guage by then too.

As long as you can feel them go solid it will be OK.

It's now almost 4am, I got the cover on finnally, seems I forgot how I got it back on the last time x) but there is now a very pretty blue line all around the timing cover.

Woo, made my goal of getting the cover on, but now I have three hours until work... \_(ツ)_/

And now I get to be paranoid about my timing being lined up correctly, despite everything being where it's supposed to be exactly. Ɛ>

That is not going to leak a drop. Last time did you use 2 studs to hang the cover on and an old lower sprocket to align the pump rotor?

I know that I swooped it in from the top, lined it up and it sllid into position without a hitch. If I had initially removed the water pump pully, that would of helped immensely.(also properly orientating the oil pump o .O )

On my last attempt I jacked up the block a little bit higher and that provided the necessary clearance.

Alright! So after getting everything wrapped up and put together, adding coolant and oil, then pulling the PCM-B fuse and coil pack plug to just turn the engine over to prime the system. Cycled the fuel pump 20+ times, then gave the key a turn and she roared back to life!

Running the double ground plugs, and put in a better PCV Oil catch can also ^^.

Thank you guys so much for the help ^ .^
