Some of the M116s, yes. But not my 116. Was in the garage today and tried thorough to find the black plastick switch with a black wire, ob the opposite side of the throttle linkage. There it was bare metal, no black plastic switch.

14-050.PDF-file is great and explain much, but some details may only be for USA-models

When installing the timing chain cover, the mating surfaces against heads/oilpan have gaskets, some rtv gasket silicon may also be used. But it doesnt exist any premade gasket for the mating surfaces on the engineblock. Should some rtv also be used there, or is it best just cleaning these surfaces and install? Big risk of leakege then?

The mating surfaces have to be coated with sealing compound IE high temp rtv silicon, but the head gaskets should be greased. This may cause a leakage

Update

New waterpump and thermostat (T) installed. Important to get the T- gasket "around" the T-edge so taht the the gasket seals on both upper and lower side of the T

Pic 4 and 5 shows how a curved metalwire was used when the oil pump chain was installed after the timing chain cover was installed

The angle of the block is slightly different at a 500 block than it is with a 380. Hopefully the exhaust headers wont rub the body of the car.

Thats an alternative. I used Master Premium RTV Silicone Gasket Maker, used it earlier and it works great.

The difference in angle is caused by the block itself or isnt the installation 100% identical?
