Hey guys I am trying to rap up the engine and finish up and prepare for paint. Now Im about ready to put the manifold back on and I was wandering if in the valley under the manifold do I need to put any oil or anything in there because I wiped it all down and cleaned it up or will the oil make its way there when I fill the car up with oil when its back in the engine compartment. And then the other question is i just put the front timing chain cover on and I was wandering how you put this darn bearing in that is around the blancer shaft. I just cant get it in there. So thanks guys.

That pan gasket under the intake is to keep oil from getting to the intake. No oil in the pan gasket, the oil drains into the lifter valley from the heads. The seal can be tapped in by lightly tapping around with a soft hammer or something bigger than the crank snout but smaller than the seal. I'd also put a little oil on the seal. No oil in the pan gasket you have a dry intake and heat should be kept away.Did I make my point?
