Crankcase Cover and Oil Filter

Step 81.1

Retrieve your Engine assembly from the previous kit. Slide the tabs of the Oil Filter onto this bottom notch of the Left Engine Block, as shown:

Step 81.2

Fit the Crankcase Cover into the bottom of the Engine Block, aligning it over the posts as shown.

This Cover will sit flush to the Engine Block when installed correctly:

Step 81.3

Secure the Crankcase Cover into place with two (2) DS07 screws, as shown.

Fit the pin on the rear end of the Engine Breather Tube into this matching top hole of the Gearbox Top Housing:


Just the Oil Pan and Spark Plug Wires to add in the next kit and we can get this engine installed into our Eleanor!
