It's just the right hand side of the case, with the crank. Oil pump is still attached. I have an old baking sheet in my shop I can put the case in. Maybe baste it with a nice little 5W-30? Ha!
Remove the oil pump as you might as well replace the gasket anyhow. I put mine in the oven at 250 but the crank and bearing fell out before that point, the pinion tool was a waste of money for me, could not hold up to the pressure. Make sure you post pics of the parts in the oven if the wife or girlfriend sees them.
