    1st top end replacement...

    I have a 96 sl700 and i am about ready to replace the top end ...... ? is is there anything else i need other than gasket set. What kind of lock tight do i need how to i know where to use it? Any tricks or any advise i need to know before I start.

    Do i put any drops of oil in the crankcase....(been without jugs on it for a few weeks now they are getting bored out)

    this is my first top end replacement

    thanks in advance!

    Get your hands on a repair manual. There are torque specs and patterns you must follow.

    Then read it BEFORE doing the top end to get familiarized with it,

    It will tell you where to use locktite

    Not for a top end kit.

    Only if you split the engine cases would you need any silicone.
