New Chains Guides and Stuff

Just posting to keep the forum subsection alive.

New tensioners, guides, gears, phasers, chains and solenoids. going to take my time putting everything back on making sure they look as good as they used to.




Things get pretty dirty on the front of the motor so I'm going to try and get them looking like this again.

Did you choose to take the water pump off? could you have done the job without removing it? draining the radiator and removing it help with timing cover removal for spatial reasons? obviously your motor is a bit more than stock. timing cover looks badass btw. I will be doing this job next year or 3 years from now. I beat on my car pretty good and about to take it to the track. looks like a pretty basic tear down and r/r of timing parts you mentioned. any tips or tricks? thanks in advance.

I have an electrical H2O pump and it is easier to get to the inside cover bolts. Can't remember if the stock one is in the way or not. I removed the radiator so I had room to get my impact gun onto the pulley removal tool. If you are using manual tools you might be able to get away with just removing the fan and shroud but I'm not sure but it does give you much better access. Also, if you get a pulley tool from your local auto store, get the Chrysler pulley removal tool, not the ford one. Don't forget to apply a dab of rtv on the seams where the head meets the block and down by the corners of the oil pan. A dab on the crank key way too is vital to not having any leaks. As far as specialty tools I would highly recommend the phaser locking tool. The crankshaft positioning tool is not all that important but can't hurt to have.
