I'm with Jim - I put one of those on the first time I changed the oil in my
car. Getting it on is a bit of a game of course... Mine went in from the
bottom after removing the clutch slave cylinder. Also, you'll want to use
grease to hold the gaskets in the block - I had oil pumping all over the place
from getting the gasket improperly positioned the first couple of times I
turned it over. Messy and a little hard on the motor.
