czakky Posted December 31, 2015 Report Share Posted December 31, 2015 I recommend a light smear of "Hylomar" (really good stuff!) on both sides of the gasket. Remember that the timing chain is whipping oil at the mating surfaces. I've done the timing chest a couple times and never had a need for a rotor puller. The crank isn't tapered it just uses a woodruff key. The only trouble is keeping the crank from turning while you loosen the rotor nut. I usually lock the ring gear through the peep hole with a longish flathead screwdriver. It is a bit fiddly but can be done. It took me like six-eight hours total the first time I did it, could probably do it in three if I hurried after doing it. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
