JM, I was actually kinda kidding. It would have been fun.
I went into Kragen and the kid went back to get the tool for me to use. When he came out it was zip tied and was new. It was $30 so I just bought it. I got it pulled and the keyway in the balancer and crank look good to me. Even the woodruff was not bad. I bought an assortment of 5 and the correct one is in the package. So gotta clean everything up. I took the timing cover off and have some pictures to share. I gotta load them up and resize them. Forgot to protect the bolt head, ruined it. Oh well, if that's the worst thing so far, not bad.
Looks like the top gear is plastic? I took it off and inspected it and the other gear, chain looks loose, but only on ONE side. Then I rotated the engine a few times to line up the writing so I could get some good pictures. Just kidding, I'm dumb, but I isn't stupid.
I guess I will have to install a timing chain assembly and seal while I have it all apart, Right? What manufacturer should I use? Anybody got any part numbers?... Danny
