I just ordered an oil cooler and some oil restrictors from summit racing. The oil cooler is pretty self explanatory on the installation but on the restrictors Im not sure how to put them on. Can someone enlighten me please? Do you have to pop the entire head off to put them on or anything that would be a pain to do? Also, The sealant around my crankcase by the oil pan kinda fell off and now Im leaking oil. Whats the best stuff to put on there to make it stop leaking? Or do i Have to pull the timing chain cover, harmonic balencer and everything off and replace the gasket and seal?
Thanks again guys

The oil restrictors are installed in the block, in the oil passages between the cam and crank bearings in the main webs.

anything you use to try and seal the pan will be temporary only. my advice is to pull the pan and replace the gasket. contact summit racing at, if you have a 289/302 they have a one piece gasket that works great.

I have the Price Motorsports oil restrictors in my 372C. If you use a Hyd. cam I would advise you to drill out the lifter gallery restrictor from .110 (Moroso's kit has a .090 I think) to .125.
Works great on the street.
