Lol after 50 pushups, well I cant pull it cause I don't have an engine puller or all the tools to do that kind of job. I know people can rent them but I don't have the time or money to do that sort of job right now. I already had to buy many tools just to do this job. I am really new at doin stuff like this. I have knowledge but not experience. This is my first time doing something this major.

I have seen the corners clipped off before. We used to do this when doing timing chains. It doesnt take much to make it so it will wiggle on. I am not a fan of sealer only but I have seen it done and it does work if done properly. Just be careful not to get it in the pan.

Well I just installed my timing cover and tried the first time to put a small bead on the pan then the cover but I was not able to get the bead to stay right on the pan so I cleaned it all off then I just took my timing cover and just filled in the lower lip area with a bunch of silicone and just slowly pushed it in almost straight to where it aligned on the dowel pins. I then put in my cover bolts and just kind of hand tightend them a little and let it sit for a little while. Then I tried to put just a little more silicone around the outer part of the timing cover where it mates to the pan and it looks like a mess but it looks like I got everything. As long if the silicone did not fall off on the inside wich it looks like it didn't. I am keeping fingers crossed for this weekend. I am going to put on the water pump tomorrow and then do a little here and there and should have it ready to start by next weekend. But I dont have another day off till next Tuesday from work so its hard to get enough time to do stuff with it. I will post and let you guys know what happens. Thanks
