1. Removing the PTO shaft, I removed 7 bolts...all appear to be original bolts, but TWO are shorter than the other five. Is there a reason for this or did some shorter ones get replaced sometime ago?
2. Gaskets. I ordered new gaskets. I DO NOT want them to leak. Any suggestions on what to put on them when re-installing the two rear gaskets...sealant, adhesive?
3. The sump was filled with very old tranny oil and sludge. Besides diseal, is there something I should flush the sump with?
4. The grinding of those gears. What diagnostics should I run to determine why they are grinding? I do not thing it was the loose PTO shaft (the clutch WAS attached to the shaft so it was not getting caught in the gears). There was very little and very dirty tranny oil in the sump....could that lead to grinding?

Remove the cap from the oil filter housing. At the top, inside the housing will be a hole going into the block. Squirt plenty of oil in that hole. With the ignition off, turn the engine over till oil comes back out the hole. Repeat if necessary. When the oil pumps out the hole, the pump is primed and you can put it back together and run it. It may take a few seconds after the engine starts for the pressure to register.
