does the oil pump to block gasket need to be "glued"?
Thanks as always

Dmitri,

Agreed, Gr. 8s, 30 lbs. No need for LocTite, though.

If one is "insecure" about the pump staying in place, you could use studs and NyLock nuts. We don't see an issue here with bolts coming loose.

FWIW

only tack weld if ball check is out of pump body. better to use tool to install screen into pump body. Tool sold by Mellings. Blue loctite or safety wire when racing.
