I'll be there around lunch time after my son's baseball game. I'd like to pop out the rear windows of the 80 and replace all the weather stripping. Also rerun my mic extension for my radio and if @emorth will be there do some de soldering work.

Have to do crank pulley when doing the oil pump.
I have since changed my mind, I was brain farting and thinking this was at OTRAMMS and he has the tool necessary.
I think it may take too much time and still need parts.
I was thinking OTRAMM has the parts available for purchase.

Pieces just not coming together.

Still need/want to do it.

It takes a few hours to do the crank pulley seal and oil pump cover seal I did it in my driveway a few years back. I even got a 3/4" breaker bar and the proper socket to knock the crank pulley bolt loose. There are no SST's required.
I highly recommend (if you haven't already) purchase replacement screws with the torx heads on them for the oil pump cover. You will likely strip/damage at least one Phillips screw.

I've got a crank holding tool that makes it easier to loosen the crank bolt as well as hold it to torque it. I've got a few left in the latest batch. If someone wants to swing by and snag one, I'll donate it to the club tool collection.

I don't unfortunately. Normally I keep them in stock. I needed one this morning and realized I was out. Had to order more in.

1/8 or 3/16" nylon or poly. 16 gauge electrical wire works in a pinch but you have to watch that it doesn't cut the gasket.

Yup, watching that made me think that I could tackle it with a little help. I even went to HF and bought a set of picks that I'll grind down to use to get the lip over as you did. At one point you said getting the WS back around the outside of the aluminum frame was a pain. Any tips for making it less a pain? Lots of soapy water?

It's mostly a pain because I don;t have feeling or much dexterity left in my fingers. It's just really fiddly working it back over.

Pretty sure I have the stuff. Lemme look through some boxes once I stop drinking. I know that I've ordered the crank seal and the oil pump cover. They might be a bit buried, though, and I'm three beers in.
3 beers and you're having trouble? You may want to be careful if you come camping with the club....

6 beers down. Found all this... I missed the part in the by-laws about "tolerance:. @b4wheeler I think this is everything. Main seal,
pump gasket, new bolts, distro dust gastket, and distro o-ring.

LOL!
I'm going to raise the BS flag on you reading the bylaws... But a good one nonetheless.
I was just passing on some friendly advice... There is nothing in the bylaws regarding sodemy either. :moon::princess:
