    Default another DA moment

    Putting my oil pan on the new mil - clean the oil pan very thoroughly inside and out, not getting in a hurry, put down some silicone set gaskets on, make sure they are perfect, add a little more silicone, step back do a good once over double check, grab the pan, set it on, kick something on the ground under motor.....FREAKING WINDAGE TRAY, forgot to re-install. off the pan comes...

    If this is a windage tray that mounts to the studs instead of inside the pan, I'll I can say is OH WELL.

    Don't feel too bad. I assembled an entire engine and installed in the boat. Went to prime the engine only to find out I didn't install the pump drive shaft.

    Beat me to it. I hate when that happens. Years ago a frinend offered up his hardened drive rod for me. Put it in and it was a small block rod.

    Several years ago I did this same thing. Then, after I had spent an entire evening trying to figure out why I had no oil pressure, I had to suffer the humiliation of asking a friend to help me. One of the first things he did was pull the dist and ask, "Where's the oil pump drive shaft?"
    Uhh, sitting on the bench!
