  • The Return of Rocinante: Part 1 | DR1665
    vise and breaker bar Now we see why the oil pump is only 50 I applied assembly lube to all moving parts before packing it with synthetic grease Test fitting the balance shaft before bolting to the new oil pump Before I realized the crank sprocket slipped right off I held the phone down in the engine bay and snapped a couple pictures to see if I could spot a timing mark This is one of them No timing mark here This is the other Timing mark is just below the woodruff key Okay So you line up the timing marks on the sprockets with the plated links in the chains then set the engine to top dead center TDC and that s when you realize you don t have the head on so how does this work again Set the cam sprocket on the little shelf take a step back and scratch your head I decided to fit the new oil pump When I went to install the sprocket removed back at the shop I knew it was indexed to a woodruff key like the crank but there wasn t one on the new pump Fortunately I hadn t thrown the old pump out yet Snagged this little bugger out Then I gently carefully tapped it into place with a hammer This was quite a reach from above It took me more than a couple tries to figure out how to tighten the oil pump balance shaft bolts with everything free spinning Extension into the water pipe box wrench on upper ratchet on the lower Then double check the timing marks and plated links and Decide the marks are too damned hard to see take it all off paint the marks and links with white appliance touchup paint in

  • My First G54B Teardown, Part 2 | DR1665
    which was easier to remove with the head THE ORIGINAL LEAK My driveway was getting pretty oily before this filter fiasco and here s the culprit This little plug when the head is installed is located within an inch of the firewall It s probably doable without pulling the head but it s not the sort of thing any rookie is going to want to try blind FINALLY I ve almost got access to that infernal oil pump Almost Oh and see that exhaust pipe on the left in the picture below It s a 3 bolt connection Only one bolt stud had a nut on it The rest of my exhaust leak The exhaust side wasn t as filthy as the intake side thanks to those two prior pressure washings FINAL CLEANING At the advise of my mentors on 4x4wire com I removed the old head gasket taped everything off plugged things up with old rags and paper bags in preparation for yet another de greasing scrubbing and pressure washing BEFORE DRY SCRUB DURING WET SCRUB Just look how vile and filthy this thing was Ugh MEANWHILE BACK AT THE SHOP Believe it or not it was below 40 F outside here in Phoenix the morning I did this so by the time I was done spraying water everywhere I decided to put things away before taking an AFTER shot Next installment The head intake manifold and carburetor are still at the shop where I ll be going this week to separate and clean them properly I ve still got a few odds and ends to order before I can get this pig back on the road but it s getting closer I ve even tracked down another exhaust manifold although it s cracked too 2013 3 Words Casudi
