I've attached Pictures of my base gasket, crank case (Pictures worth a thousand ......)
Notice the chamfer on the oil galley which is reducing the sealing surface of the case. Then check out the alignment of the base gasket to the oil galley line. The sealing surface of the case and material left on the gasket is extremely thin. I don't want to have a blow out.
Has anyone had this issue and what did you do to fix it. Different gasket set (I'm currently using an Aftermarket Top End Gasket Set), sleeve the galley line, don't use a base gasket and add a head gasket to get the right squish, o-ring the line, use sealant to fill the void up to the oil line, etc.
I think I might be tapping my own base gasket, ugh.
I just replaced my Piston and Rings and was re-assembling.
If some of you Engine Rebuilding Gurus could chime in I would greatly appreciate your advice.
Thanks in advanced for any replys,
