Default i tore it back apart !!

after all that,i tear the front end back off down to the timing chain cover and i put her back on TDC:...i find that when i remove the valve covers that the right camshaft gear is sittin about 10:00 o'clock and the left side is sittin about 01:00,so i take all this apart and keep the chains stabilized and move the cam gears (V8) back around to 12:00 and i put it all back together and torqued and that's when i dropped my 5/16 wrench down in the timing chain res...so i go ahead and take the water pump off and come to find out the bearings is gone in it,so i just LMAO and get on the phone and order the right kind of harmonic balancer puller for 90.00 and that was after i ordered a water pump,so i think the wrench saved my tail !!

you can rotate the engine without taking the head off to get them both back at TDC
the left head was out of time on mine so i rotated the right head, the engine, the left head, the engine, and then both the heads.

OMG, that brings back images i would rather forget
I once put an engine back together, then dropped the air cleaner lock nut down into a carburetor

Is it only out here that you can rent tools from Autozone & Orielys
