What does that do to your ability to ever take the timing cover off again? I noticed in the WIS that Saab shows a couple of places to put extra dabs of sealant when the timing cover is removed or the head gasket is changed. One of them is the where the timing cover and block meet. My NG900 sprung a leak there when it hit about 100,000 miles. I thought it was way too new to have oil all over the side of the engine so I replaced the head gasket, and managed to break a timing chain guide in the process, turning a weekend job into a two week job while I waited for parts. I've since done the same job on a pair of 9-5s, so I'm an old pro at it now. ;)
