how to put timing chain cover on 1986 dodge 318
My car has an automatic transmission.
Assuming you have just replaced the timing chain, to reinstall the timing chain cover you will need to apply some gasket sealant around the edge of the block where the timing cover seals and bolts to the block. Carefully line up the cover to the block making sure all bolt holes line up to the block. Insert the bolts running them in finger tight to make sure it seals correctly and is aligned properly. Torque down to spec which is usually about 6 ft-lbs.
