    Default 505 pushrod engine bearing caps

    Hello
    How would you fit the rear bearing cap without the special peugeot tool?
    Haynes says to insert 2 stripes of celluloid between the block and the rubbers, in order not to stretch the rubbers, and remove them later. i tried it with camera film stripes, when i pulled them out they got torn and remained stuck inside.

    Well I dont use any film strips but I lubricate the rubbrs with a bit of grease and they settle and seal well but it all comes down to experience and good feel for what the problems might be.

    2pac,
    Use two strips of steel or brass shim [light gauge].

    Haynes says to cut the rubber seals 2 mm above the cap, other manuals say 0.5 mm.
    What's the truth here?

    .5 to 1 mm gives enough crush into the sump gasket to complete the seal at the rear.
