Hey guys, can someone tell me how it all goes back together?

i have it all apart. not much room to move under the exhaust man. but i'll manage.

i have a new oring, and the steel shim update from ford.

this is what the pipe currently looks like:

my question is, does it already have the shim in place? or do i add it to the front of this?

any other pointers?
regards, Michael.

Remove the old oring, get some sandpaper to clean off the corrosion, put some vasoline/rubber grease on the new oring and install on pipe, making sure the oring isn't twisted. Put pipe back into water pump and fit metal retainer to hold everything in.

yeah I know. I was looking at it thinking how in hell is that meant to make a watertight seal and wtf is this metal sleeve going to do about it...
Got it all together again and added a ton of create-a-gasket that auto-barn recommended. here's hoping it doesn't leak again any time soon.

the shim actually slides inside the pipe, and has a slightly larger diametre than the original pipe does.
Reason the o'rings fail is the weight of the pipe rests on the oring which causes it to collapse/squash.
I've not really seen one leak once it'd had the sleeve fitted to the pipe

Oh. Ok. Cool I noticed that as well. So the weight of the pipe rests steel on steel instead of the o ring.
