I'm sure you already bought the gaskets, but @NLXTACY (Wits' End) sells a kit for everything you need to change while doing this job.


It's out of stock for the moment, but he always list everything you need.

This kit includes:
• OEM Oil Pump Cover o-ring (15188-66020)
• Distributor o-ring (90099-14118)
• Front engine seal (90311-52022)
• (7) M6-1.0 x 12mm Stainless Steel Screws
• Sil-Glyde grease (to keep the o-ring in place)
• VESSEL 3-bit Kit (to remove the old screws)
• 1/4" 4mm hex bit (for new screws)
• Oil level sensor gasket (90430-27001)
• 2" PVC pipe cap to install crank seal

I also changed the water pump for good measure, but if you do that. . .you might as well do:

Too late to the party, but for future reference (adding to all above) also a good time to check the water pump and alternator while the belts are off ie: for roughness/noise (bearings). Also the alternator belt idler pulley, replace alternator brushes (or new alternator), modify or replace the fan clutch if needed, ---

It can become a long list of "while you're in there" services.

To add to the already mentioned stuff.
If you're in there with all that stuff removed.

Coolant flush
Blue Fan Clutch
power steering pump diy rebuild or reman
New low pressure line PS hoses
New high pressure line PS hoses
Maybe a refresh of the PS Box itself.
All this stuff up above is leaky and part of the cause of the oil everywhere

By then your on the driver side block.
Fuel pump
Maybe knock sensors
PHH

It can keep going and get out of hand. But you'll have all the PM stuff done
