Clean the bridge and the face of the cylinder block.
Apply a thin bead of 8T-9013 Silicone Sealant on the
corners of the seat for the bridge. Also apply the
sealant around the thread holes in the seat for the
bridge. Use the following steps when you apply
8T-9013 Silicone Sealant to the cylinder block and the
Apply a 3.0 mm (.12 inch) bead of 8T-9013 Silicone
Sealant along the corner of the top Recess in the
Install bridge (2) and the rubber seals, if equipped.
The rubber seals will sit higher than the bridge when
the seals are correctly installed. Use a straight edge
to line up the bridge with the face of the cylinder
block. Tighten socket head bolts (1) to a torque of 16
N m (12 Ib-ft). Tighten the bolts evenly.
When the bridge is positioned and the socket head
bolts have been tightened, inject 8T-9013 Silicone
Sealant in the grooves that are at each end of the
bridge. The grooves must be completely filled.
When the gasket for the oil pan is removed, damage
may occur to the existing seal in the grooves of the
bridge. If the seal is damaged, apply a sufficient

Most of the current engines have setscrews that
fasten the oil pan to the bridge. The threads of
the setscrews have a sealant that is applied by the
manufacturer. When the setscrews are installed,
ensure that the threads of the socket head bolts
and the bridge are clean. Also apply 9S-3263
Thread Lock Compound to the threads of the
setscrews. Follow the same process when studs
are used instead of the setscrews.
