    There is no oil pan gasket on 85 and up Supra engines, it is factory silicone. With the cam tower gaskets, be sure to get the METAL ones, or they will leak again. I think felpro actually made those gaskets correctly? Anyway, hope that helps. Be careful, and try to look where your hands are going to go if a tool slips, so you can prepare with gloves, padding, or a better tool.

    Thanks for the tip. Just kinda through me off at first. I'll probably contact George @ raptorracing to see if he can find me some. He's been a great help so far.

    I had two, lol. I was on one motor mount, friend on the other mount, one on the lift. One mount would come loose, other would hang up, so lots of wiggling/screw driver then WHAM. not much I could do.








    Oh ya....

    Thanks man, I'm hoping to have this back on the road in a months time starting Tomorrow. Gonna be a dad in around a month and my only transportation is a gsxr 750...lol. I did email George @ raptorracing with a parts list and he said he would see if he had it all tomorrow, so hopefully I can get some stuff on the way.

    Got some wire body harness cleaned up, also pressure washed the carpet...

    It's a 1994 gsxr 750w. Got it not running, all it had was full exhaust no jetting to compensate for fuel. So far I've done, clutch plates and springs, stage 3 factory pro jet kit, stage 3 individual filters, flush mount turns, new choke cable, fixed headlight switch, new tail light. Just need to sync the carbs.

    OH, and when I put the head back on, the front where it takes high heat sealer and also for the oil pan, I have some yamalube crank case sealer left over from my first bike where I rebuilt the transmission, will that work okay?





    I'll post a pic of the hole bike tomorrow, never got shots of it put back together.
