    Rod no you don't but as explained, doing it that way is hit & miss. I know it can be done though not recommended. Too much work to pull the box again only to do it all again should it leak.
    When I did it bought a plate with the seal, removed the seal & binned it, installed alignment tool torqued bolts as per procedure. Good luck with it.
    Do one thing every day that scares you!

    Engine is out. A few more things are getting replaced also whilst it is out. New Pulleys and belts, new alternator, new power steering pump (was leaking onto alternator), new radiator and new engine mounts.

    I actually have an almost new Dominator Eliminator lock up stallie just sitting in my shed (I doubt it has even done 1,500kms)
    but I was really only messing around,

    I reckon if I sold it my son would be very unhappy.

    I was more thinking along the lines of if you had plans for one in the near future now would save money in fitting one.

    Funny you should ask, they were about to ring me and tell me to come and pick up my 100 percent leak free ute when Geoff noticed that the timing cover was weeping. He won't be able to get a seal until early next week so the wait continues

    Yep, I could tell by the tone of his voice that it was not going to be good news. Was pleased that it was something simple though. He reckon's it was their fault and that it occurred when putting the harmonic balancer back on.

    Finally got her back, and leak free. The engine looks amazing, they did a great job of cleaning everything whilst it was out. They also put a new heater tap in whilst it was in there, something that I had in the back of my mind after having one fail on the old VT2 SS. They also did the cam sensor whilst it was easy to access. The old alternator looked like someone had submerged it in power steering fluid and glad that it got replaced and not just cleaned up and take a punt.

    It makes a bit more noise Ed, other than that I cannot really tell any difference. Still feels like a slug down low, but in it's defence I have been driving the Calais to work most days since it went in.

    Re: Another Holden in the Family :)

    A bit of an odd question. I was just checking all the headlight globes and found that the car has not parker lights. I have never seen a car without them. The spot for them it there but blanked off. I cannot even see the wiring or socket for the wedge globe when I pull the rear cover off the headlight. Is this illegal? I assume they are aftermarket units.
