@warp9.9 I have my sump off now.
- Can I reuse the screen bolts if I use blue Loctite?
- Are you saying to use blue Loctite on *all* the bolts, including perimeter, or just on the screen bolts?
- How careful do you need to be with brake cleaner in contact with the painted surface of the sump?
Yes, reuse the sump screen bolts with blue thread locker (doesn't have to be Loctite, it can be Permatex or any other brand just make sure its blue medium strength). I just hung the sump up from a wire and sprayed the heck out of her to include the casting channels.
No need to use thread locker on the perimeter bolts or any other bolts. Make sure you pull the pressure pump out and you will see a bolt underneath: it's the one that messes with people when the try to split the cases. Do Not use the jack bolt ears on the input shaft they will break off. Newer manuals show a slap wrench on the end of the input shaft to remove it. I didn't have a newer manual, so I just used a brass drift to knock the input shaft out from the inside. A slap wrench will be easier.
[below is that bolt I was referring to]
