After replacing of rod bearings on crank shaft. I did bad work with oil
pan gaskets. It is made of set of three gaskets. The long ones from harder material
are okay. But front and rear gasket
are leaking. I could see it in front and when i was pushing with finger on gasket
it was soft and drop of oil
did come out then.
But what worries me more is the other gasket at the back side. After the three hours of engine
running i could see oil on a wheel
through the hole in transmission
I am in Guatemala
now.I think i could go on to reach the USA and do the work there, but is it not the a clutch
on the wheel
, and will it not start to slide once the oil will reach her?
And how can i pump out now the oil.?
I did the work by elevating of engine
as much i could and then working laying in the bilge
under. When i am thinking now i remember that i had to push hard to get gasket in the channel. it is becoming clear to me now that i did lose volume of gasket doing it. I did not remove any other elements of the engine and it is that i am getting the picture now, that other elements then push on gasket to make them larger in direction where oil pan is pressing.
And what would be the best way to come out of this situation?
