I’m trying to leak proof my T86 case around the front as there was oil in the bottom of the adapter cavity during tear down. I took off the front bearing retainer to redo the seals and the last person who rebuilt this transmission did not use a paper gasket, they used RTV, which was pretty deteriorated. They siliconed the oil return hole shut as they used a bearing that is sealed on the front side. The bearing and the seal on the retainer are in really good shape so I am not going to change them. I don’t have a lot of experience working with RTV so I wanted to ask a question. Since I have this apart should I pull the old plug RTV dab out of the oil return hole and put in some new RTV? I have the paper gasket from the crown kit, is it worth putting this on with sealant, or should I just RTV the whole thing again? and lastly, the button head Allen screws that hold the retainer onto the case had crush washers behind the bolt heads that were staked into the side of the heads. Should I replace these with new ones or use internal tooth lock washers and locktite 243? The crown kit has paper bolt gaskets but I don’t think those are a good idea. love to get the thoughts of the experts who e dealt with these issues before. Thx.
