Title: Question on v50 sump gasket
Post by: lucian on July 30, 2021, 07:20:55 PM
Cleaning up a few things on my daughters v50,  weeping cylinder base gaskets is where it all started. I decided it would be a good time to drop she sump and clean the screen filter and the crud out of the sump pan.  After cleaning up the gasket surfaces on both sump and block it looks like there is supposed to be two o rings as there is clearly two grooves on the sump pan . One around the filter tunnel and a smaller one around an oil passage.  There was none to be found when disassembled. I just received the new gasket and it appears to include gasket material on these two faces as well as the pan perimeter.
  Is this a new gasket that supersedes the need for the o rings ?  The o rings are shown in my service manual but the original gasket is not fully illustrated.  any insight would be greatly appreciated.  TIA,  dave

My 1991 V65GT has the same channels for an oring, but there are no orings listed in the parts list.
My gasket looks like this

It seems the orings are not needed anymore.

Thanks for the reply, the gasket I received is identical to the one in your illustration.  Also the one I scraped off I assume was the same as there was gasket material over the o ring areas.  Perhaps a little Honda bond in the grooves, and the new gasket ,and bolt her up.
