That's what I figure i'd have to do. Shouldn't be too much work I guess.
When you've been gathering parts for this build for 4-5 years now...you have time to ebay search for all sorts of goodies. I'm also trying my best to avoid generic, or aftermarket parts and use quality or OEM stuff.
To insure the pan not leaking, use a thin dab in the 4 corners and on the surfaces on both sides of the arches front and back. You can use black and wipe the excess. Those are off the shelf push rods right?
Tools Needed. A vice. Hammer or mallet. Tapered spindle (or something similar). Pick. Supplies needed. 2- O Rings (size 1/2 ID - 5/8 OD - 1/16 W. Can be found here www.theoringstore.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=367_23_22&products_id=1111 ) Silicone Grease. A Scotch Brite pad...
Or, since it wasn't leaking, I should just leave it alone and apply some oil and call it a day
