    Hi everyone,
    Is there a gasket between the oil pump and the block ?
    Many thanks in advance for answers.

    No, it is just metal to metal.

    Thanks for answer Gonzo.
    The oil pan baffle has a mixer of my lock nuts and normal nuts who ever did the last rebuild was a bit silly, my question is should they all be nylock nuts and not worry about any torque setting.
    The oil pump bolt torque is 65 ft pnd is this correct.
    Many thanks

    They are not nylocks but pinch nuts. That is, the threads at the end are squashed a bit so they drag and not come loose.
