No it blows the oil filter gasket as soon as you turn it over a few tries

alright I tore apart the samurai trying to figure out what the problem is. I have a few suspicions but nothing conclusive, and I really dont want to throw it all back together and see if it works (pain in the a**). here are some pics

hopefully chuck or anyone else can put in their 2 cents

this is where the oil pump bolts on. the top right circle is where the oil pump pushes the oil into the filter. It was half clogged with RTV



this is the oil pump. that screw that is screwed in, is not in the pics in my haynes manual. but there is also no hole in the oil pump in the pics?



then this is where the oil filter screws on. isnt the oil filter usually recessed into the block? with this setup the filter gasket flush mounts to the block and seems like a weird set up?
