Still waiting on the timing cover! This is ridiculous. I canceled my order from NAPA because a week later they still hadn’t shipped it! I ordered another one from autozone that was supposed to be one day shipping and it is now estimated to arrive next weekend...dammit
I did rotate the engine to TDC and everything looks good. I’m just sitting here with all my shiny new parts waiting for the last one to get it back together!!
Cover came today, got it on with the water pump, next up ...harmonic balancer! What a freakin nightmare. What are the chances that I actually got this cover correctly lined up with all the gaskets and RTV still good ������ well I tried.
Dustybumpers you’re out here?!! I’m down at PAX, are you up north or south?
For the Harmonic balancer install, I'm seeing a few different recommendations for oil/rtv: should I put oil on inside & outside of Harmonic balancer before installing? Also should I put rtv on key and keyhole?
Keyway tiny bit of oil so it slips some oil on crank, don't go crazy. Put some oil in the rubber in the seal with your finger so it is lubed. If you don't, first crank over will dry rip the rubber and it will leak. Put a dab of permagasket in the corner of the oil pan and timing cover. It will squeeze out what it don't want
