Impact works the best as the initial pounding is t as bad as using full force and pressure as a breaker bar would.Well yeah that goes without saying, but do ya hit it with an impact? Use just a ratchet? Wedge the sprocket with wood? I have these questions because I've never done it but I'm getting ready to.
I didn't realize changing this was a thing. I thought it'd be good for the engines lifetime?No no no. The timing chain sprocket on the crank. ive done the regular sprocket dance a few times
Gotta pull the headI didn't realize changing this was a thing. I thought it'd be good for the engines lifetime?
You don't need to remove the timing chain sprocket at the lower end to do that.Gotta pull the head
Thank you falcn.You don't need to remove the timing chain sprocket at the lower end to do that.
Take off the cylinder head cover. Remove camshafts and then your timing chain is free. The head comes off. Just make sure you don't drop the timing chain.
I definitely recommend buying the shop manual. This procedure is covered in detail with torqies and bolt order of operations for tightening.
Another method is to use safety wire to ensure you don't drop the timing chain.Dang sorry Tracy did not realize that was what you were doing. Exactly what falcn said. I used a long zip tie on the chain so I could easily grab it. I have also used wire and other things as well with other engines. A lot easier once you have the head off and looking at the crank. But yeah definitely not removing any sprockets. Also I am measure twice cut once, I make marks on everything and take pictures. It’s a little tough marking the cam chains with a engine paint marker for that stuff but if you are careful it won’t come off going back together, and it lines all up nicely and alot easier to see or understand than the marks in the manual(which as I mentioned in another post on first glance confused almost all of us, if even just for a minute)
I'm not trying to be mean, and was actually trying to be a little humorous.Wow. I was so mistaken to think that this forum was a vehicle to share info and HELP fellow members. Boy was I wrong!
Yeah you basically pressurize the cylinder that has bad compression, or low compression while that cylinder is at TDC, and then measure how much leaks off during the test. Tester typically has two gauges and air coupling hook up. All engines will have a very slight bit, but a great amount could indicate bad valve seats or guides, excessive carbon build up, blown head gasket, shot rings or scored cylinder walls, etc.Leakdown test???
