Hopefully Mike's questions can be answered along with mine:

I bought the connector plug union due to it being circled in red. I don't know why it would need replacement, but since I have it I will be putting it in. I suspect that the white stuff is teflon tape. Hopefully someone will confirm that teflon tape is proper and safe to use in this application.

My questions as I work through these fixes:

Has anyone replaced the oil return tubes with the expandable type with the heat exchangers in the car? I am going back and forth on whether to do that while I'm in there. Pros and cons of aluminum vs. OEM style sold by Pelican?

Any disadvantages to replacing the crank pulley seal while you're in there?

Most importantly: What's the procedure for reinstalling the crank pulley? Ideally a procedure that does not involve the $199.50 wrench to hold the pulley still while you torque down the nut. This is the most intimidating part of the procedure for me.

Thanks everyone, especially Perelet for blazing the trail.
