Hmm.... I wonder what water pump gasket I should use? The fiber one that came with the water pump, or the nice looking plastic one that came with my Timing cover gasket set? Decisions... decisions... :P

Use the fiber, not the plastic. I use a thin bead of water pump sealant (RTV) on both sides as well. VERY thin bead.

as installed:

Quick question as I put the timing cover on....

What is the tube of Black RTV silicone for that came in the timing kit? I'm not exactly sure....but something tells me it was meant for the waterpump gasket included.

I used it on the long water pump bolts (they go through the cover to the block) and at the bottom corners of the timing cover gasket.

Ok, HB is getting ready to go back on. I got the crank sensor adjusted, so I am ready. Do you guys rent the HB installer at Autozone, or can I just force it back on with the bolt? I think that'* all I need to know for now.

I wasn't aware of any installer. I used to put it on the reverse of install (hold the flywheel, tighten like hell).

Now I use an impact and go BRRRRTTTT.

Well, I am almost done...

I am stuck in a hole though...

All I have left to do is my accessory bracket, ICM bracket, and a few odds and ends. Problem is, I am left with some black bolts, and some silver colored ones (assuming aluminum?) I have NO clue on what bolt goes where. I know there are the 2 studs that go onto the ICM bracket, but I am unsure what color the 3rd one is.... a black one or a silver one? Hopefully someone can help me on this, I have a job interview on Monday at 8am..

I knew I should have marked this stuff...

Accessory bracket has larger bolts than the PS pump. Other similar bolts go through the water pump into the timing cover. Largest bolt goes through your torque-axis mount.

Post pics of the bolts for us with something in the pic for size reference.
