Hi Stephen,
Do you (or anyone) know if that lug wrench is unique to only that model, or might it be the same for other models as well?

Both my side covers are pitted through after media blast.  Time to order new.

I didn't see a gasket for the oil pan but assumed there was one.  Thanks.

I don't believe that there is a gasket for the oil pan.  It is just a sealant.

Thanks for the info Scott.  I will media blast mine tomorrow.  I'm still not sure what it was but it just came off very easy.  There is surface rust
on my side covers so they should clean nicely.

Its interesting that from Niemoller when I ordered the "Engine Gasket Kit" C 00 026 it didn't contain the engine side cover gaskets or the oil pan gasket.  Also I didn't order the Main Seal and need that...

Pistons - The newer style will have the extended sleeve/tab and should be good.
Side covers - I wonder if the fibers are from someone adding a "leak repair" product to the radiator at some point in time?
                  - When my side covers were media blasted, they revealed excessive corrosion on the inside and I didn't trust them to not have pin-hole leaks. 
                     I replaced mine.

Received my rings and pistons etc from Niemoller along with the correct gasket set.  The pistons had tabs on the side that were not on the originals. 
The Machine shop will install and see if they have any issues.  Should that matter?  Do anyone of you have photos of your restored engine.  Just want to see how everyone
painted the engine parts. 

Also, once the engine side covers where removed there was a very fibrous buildup inside.  Very dry like fiberglass but brown like rust.  It came
right off.  I plan on sandblasting the side covers and powder coating.  Any thoughts?  Thanks!

Just read Scott's engine rebuild again which answered a lot of questions!  Thanks!
