I'm about to do the belt and pump on my engine that I'm prepping to drop into my 6. Just a few questions I have. Do I need to add any silicone to the water pump gasket when fitting? My gasket isn't metal and I've heard people say you need to fit metal gaskets is this true or bull? When refitting the crank pulley how do people lock the engine to enable you to torque the nut up? My engine is on a stand just so we are clear. As always help is appreciated

no silicone required, just a clean dry surface whether its paper or metal.

threadlock and torque wrench is the name of the game!

to lock the engine bung it in gear, wedge the disc and fit some wheel bolts, NEVER use the timing pins to lock the engine.

there is not a pin hole in a gti6 flywheel nor should you EVER use pins to lock the engine.

Had this argument with you before and some do some don't before I changed to lightened flywheel my 1997phase 2 black 6 had a hole in the correct place in the flywheel. Lines up at the same time as the 8mm hole in crank pully. I've also had 2 other 1998phase 2 diablo 6's that were the same and I've used to time the engine.

However did a phase one a few weeks ago and it had a hole in the flywheel but was miles out with the (solid) crank pully. And I've done phase 3 belts and they don't seem to have one.

If engine is out you should lock it using the ring gear. You can make a tool to bolt to the bell housing bolt holes in the block that locks against the teeth or you could just wedge a big screwdriver against something.

I just use an air gun and thread lock at work though it's a lot easier LOL

    theyre very good, though require removal of the starter to get it anywhere useful if the engine has the box bolted on in a 6.

    Yup we got one of those as well as all the normal pug liking pins and gear but it's rare I do one with engine out so don't ever use it.

    I have fitted a rich w flywheel so no timing hole in the back to line up with the 8mm hole in the bell housing
    I used a big pry bar through the hole in the back side of the bell housing so all good. Thanks for the relies and debate Razz
