Normally dry assembly.
If you want, you could use Honda Bond or Yama Bond. Both sealants / adhesives are used by Yamaha and Honda to seal crankcase halves, transmission halves etc while preventing leaking. Very impressive and very good. You will need clean flat surfaces for this to work. The oil pump output port and the block face are both machined flat and smooth. They.should work fine.

No reason to suspect any issues, just not a lot of instances for a dry install in my experience. Seems like everything takes a gasket or rtv (or both) and wanted to check that box to mitigate any future unforeseen circumstances.

Both Honda Bond and Yama Bond are light years better than the best RTV alternatives.

Oil pump, pickup tube, and head studs in. Starting to look like an engine!
Gotta double check pickup tube to pan clearance yet, and start laying heads and timing gear.

Made good progress today, cleaned the block deck,
cleaned the heads,
installed head gaskets
Torqued the heads to 30ftlbs and then 60ftlbs. Didn’t finish the 85ftlb sequence yet, gotta button up the bottom end yet.

What I remember on the oil pan is that I eventually used a tube of black rtv to seal the block to the windage tray (with gasket) and windage tray to pan (with gasket) it was my dumb luck I tried using just gaskets last time and it leaked like a sieve. Had to lift the motor one weekend to finally get it rtv’d and sealed. But first I have to play-doh it to see how far from the bottom of the pan I actually am, that’s about the only number I don’t know at this point.

I did look (before I re-install engine) at their SFI flex plate shields. Running a 4r70w, the options are spread thin for trans shields, so I’ll probably have to run a blanket, but the actual shields are available through Campbell Enterprises. I’m assuming this will fit between the block and trans where the stock shield was?
