2 Shortblock

Upper pan bolted on and sealed:

Installing the oil pump and pipes:

Bolting up the accessories gears that drive the oil pump, AC compressor and powersteering:

62NM for the huge bolt in the middle, 22on the greenish tinted bolts and 10NM on the 3 smaller ones

Water pump and oil pan bolted on (10NM on all the bolts)

Red RTV silicone galore - per Bentley you're supposed to run 1.5-2mm wide bead on the outer side of the bolt holes. This results in kind of a messy look of silicone spilling over on the outside of the block seams... I guess better on the outside than the inside? I'll probably just chop off the excess later on.
