Definatly replace the O rings on the coolant pipe that runs from the right engine cover to the engine. There are 2 of them!! By that I mean 2 on each end for a total of 4. I didn't remove the pipe from the cover, only the engine so didn't have to replace those 2. I missed that there were 2 and only put one O ring back in and had to tear the cover off again to put the other O ring in when it shot coolant out the side like a fire pump!! Now she runs leak free. I found it easier to place the O rings into the engine and then insert the pipe rather than put the rings on the pipe and then put it back into the engine. The rings distorted that way and wouldn't seat in the engine.
One other piece of advice, take the front bevel gear case off before you drop the engine and put it on after you remount the engine. It will save you from inventing new cuss words and several hours of time.
