f. Finally, be sure the connector location provides sufficient flat surface area to permit tightening the hex nut on the inside of the pan.
When you have determined the best location for the pan connector, locate the hole vertically by holding the hex connector nut on a vertical surface of the pan and marking its location. Drill a 17/32” diameter hole in the side of the pan.
Apply a small amount of the silicone sealant (provided in the kit) to the back (grooved) side of the hex nut (which is already mounted on the connector) and to the threads on the connector, and also to the back (grooved) side of the separate hex nut. Then insert the connector into the 17/32” hole and secure on the inside of the pan with the separate hex nut.
Before re-installing the transmission fluid pan, make sure the mating surfaces on both the pan and transmission housing are absolutely clean of all gasket material, oil or dirt. If the transmission was originally equipped with a gasket, replace with a new gasket. If silicone was originally used then carefully apply a 1/8” bead of silicone sealant (provided) around the bottom perimeter of the transmission housing using plastic nozzle

to encircle each bolt hole as shown (Refer to Allow the sealant to set up for about 1 hour. transmission, installing the bolts finger tight only.
Allow to set 45 more minutes. This allows the sealant to surfaces without squeezing it out. Tighten the bolts to the specification. Do not over tighten. Refer to the vehicle for torque specifications
