all right guys,
so I was able to remove the harmonic balancer it was very easy actually I turned the removal tool bolt by hand and it came right off.
anyways I opened the timing chain cover and I have 2..3 questions,
on this image as you can see the top gear is in bad shape. again I'm no mechanic but I just compare it to the new ford racing timing chain kit I have they are in bad shape.
so first question, my plan is to put back the crank bolt and turn the crank until the 'blue bar' on the picture is on top. I'm hopping that the 2 dots will then be aligned. if they are not aligned then I'll install them the same way (not aligned). (I have the ford racing kit from American muscle).
so I apply a good amount of grease to the parts before installing.
does this make any sense?
I admit I don't understand timing etc... yet but I don't think I do need to understand it like a mechanic to change the chain I will get there eventually I guess.
this kit I got comes with many gaskets
clearly 1 is timing chain cover gasket, there is also a small 2 pieces gaskets for the oil pan,
3 or 4 water pump? but why is there 2 of them
sorry for my stupid questions it's getting late here.
oh last question,
I use this product called permatex form-a gasket sealant
so I apply some behind the gasket and some on the gasket then wait about 1h before using bolts
thank you as always!!
