So I got this project all done - only broke 2 bolts.
Got everything all buttoned up and tested it. I have a pretty strong leak - started as a drip but as engine got hot it turned to a spray - under the left lower bolt head on the outlet pipe. No leaks at the pump itself (yet)
Of course, its the most difficult one to get at - will have to remove alt and oil pump upper mount just to get a wrench on it. It is leaking at the bolt head - not at the mating surface on the block.
I put blue goo on the bolt (maybe not enough). The OEM bolt was deteriorated so I used a flat and a lock washer under the head of a new bolt.
Any ideas on how to fix this ONCE - I don't want to take this apart any more than I have to.
Also, I used Russ's Double O-Ring / washer trick to be sure it seals at the top of the pump. That seems to put my belt in a mis-alignment as it is now on an angle. Would I shim the Alt to compensate?
Thanks, as always, for any input
