Default 300 I6 Cleanup

This thread is finally able to be created, I've bought all the gaskets I need for my 300 I6, I'll be starting to pull it tomorrow, it's supposed to be 80* here!!!! I've got Perma-dry Valve Cover, Oil Pan Gasket, Pushrod Cover gaskets, upper plenum, rear main, and timing cover/water pump. I'll take pics of all the gasket boxes with Part Numbers. Still gotta purchase the Oil Pump and Paint, but that will come a little later, not really needing it right now. I decided to go ahead and just pull the engine out to save me the headache of trying to climb in the engine bay and on the ground to get the gaskets in, so it'll be easier, and I'll see if it will fit on my engine stand, doubtful but it might.

Stay Tuned.

Using lion's head shellac for the Timing Cover/Water Pump gaskets, best stuff I've used for it:



Using Black RTV for the 4 spots on the Oil Pan:





Oil Pan Gasket:







Valve Cover Gasket:







Rear Main:







Pushrod Cover Gasket with Grommets:









Upper Intake Plenum:







As for the Color of the block, haven't decided yet, I don't want Blue, the truck once it's redone will be a Cobalt shade of Blue, I'm thinking Battleship Grey, unless I wind up like biker did and we go look for paint and find that one odd color that REALLY stood out and popped!!!!

Stay Tuned!!

Those gasket alignment pins are a lifesaver! Especially if your under the truck changing the gasket. If you recall, se used the shellac on the water pump/ timing cover in Nov '12 and it leaked like a MF'r. I've since used the Blue RTV and on that and the new engine without any issue for the past year. As far as paint for the block, I went the color I did because I thought it matched the salmon color on the body. It looks totally different in the right light. Lol but it just happens to be a good color for the rest of my plans with it. If I can ever get to it! Smh.

I think the Shellac leaked like a MF'r cause it was like 30* outside and raining and windy so it was a cold MF'r... I used the shellac on my 351w Waterpump stuff and and didn't have a leak, I don't think that shellac likes cold weather.

I'm still undecided on color, I'll know it when I see it when I go to get the Oil Pump, gonna need to get a clutch alignment tool as well.

I've decided to wait to pull the engine out until I have the oil pump and paint. IDK about this engine, but I might also have to get a fuel line disconnect tool, we were able to lift the injectors with fuel rail attached out of the way on the 5.0 in Biker's truck.. Guess I'll just have to wait and see...

Since you have to remove the plenum, the fuel rail should just twist to the side. Might even zip tie it. It'll save depressurizing the line. As old as the connections are, it might save the headache too.
