i recently purchased a Victor Reinz full gasket/seal kit. there are several o-rings and washers that are confusing me.

there are six o-rings:

1. small green - dipstick tube
2. large - breather tower
3. largest - water pump
4. small D shaped - distributor shaft
5. small - t-stat housing to 3&4 head
6. large - flywheel/flex plate o-ring

not included in the kit:

pulley o-ring
oil cooler o-ring

there are six washers:

1. copper head drain washer (1&2 head)
2. copper head drain washer (3&4 head)
3. copper large - oil drain plug
4. copper medium - oil pickup tube bolt
5. copper small - unknown
6. small steel - unknown

edited to add confirmed usages

Hi,

No help with your direct question but a heads up on the oil pump gaskets. There are two, one for the back of the pump and one to go between pump body and cover plate. The latter, in two kits Ive had experience with, were thicker than they should be. Just going by faulty memory , the cover plate gasket was closer to 0.010 than the expected 0.004 or so.

I ended up with lower than expected oil pressure due to this. Finally I discarded the gasket and used locktite gasket sealing compound.

I did lap the cover plate aswell.

You could probably use Reinzosil between the pump and cover.

Thanks Dabaron - I wish I had this a month ago, but still, now I know why I had so many extras that I couldn't find a home for. Hope you're having luck getting them all on.

sorry, i've been distracted by life (aka 17year old son) or i would have gotten to this about a month ago...

still haven't figured out what the small copper and small steel washers are for, i'm guessing not for my 2.1 FI engine.

hope your rebuild went!

that is the plan. everything looks to be in good shape and damn near 0.000 clearance.

You do want a bid of end play here IIRC, like three thousandths.

I like the anaerobic gasket maker at this location though.

I think FF might be the small crush washer that goes on the fuel pressure test port on the fuel injection T, I would also say that the fuel pump gasket is used on the FI vans to seal the block off plate to the block.

G are Type4 exhaust gaskets.

FF is aluminum, it's for the fuel pressure test port screw.

Going by looks, I'd say you mixed up S and Y. Anyway, breather tower is fat black, f/w is silvery.

AA and EE are all just M8 coppers, for oil pickup bracket bolt and head drain plugs.

The fat pulley o-rings are often good for another go, but VanCafe has them. OWHX eared o-ring also has to be bought separately, VC once again.

There's a lot left over after you build a US wbx, don't think you have to account for everything.

Oil pump gear endplay should be as small as you can get it while the gears still turn freely. 0.001" would be ideal. The clearance opens up at temp, so no need to have .003" cold, it'll be that big when it runs. Reinzosil is great for direct sealing of the cover without a gasket.

thank you for the updates...

my oil pump endplay was between .002 and .003, i used Reinzosil between the case and pump and the thin gasket for the cover based on a previous post comment.

You'll want to pull that gasket out and use your sealant of choice.
