Explanation:
This is pretty wild guess, but if you are describing the tightening sequence for a waterpump on a Renault 5, 9, 11, 19, 21 or similar engine (see link below, seach for backhousing on page 26) then the pump is screwed to the engine block via a steel plate, which acts partly as a spacer and partly as the rear cover of the water pump (a bit of it sticks out outside the engine block).
Having owned 3 R5's I am fully aquainted with this Heath-Robinson construction!
