So I turned my Mbc up a complete turn and didnít notice a difference so I turned it again and on the first wot pull I backfire,!and lost at least one cylinder , white smoke smells like coolant.
Drove for about 2 miles after it popped
Really hoping I didnít cause damage to bearings
Iíve swapped motors and trannys and done timing before but never have pulled the head. Anything to watch out for?
Iím going to keep exhaust mani and intake mani on while pulling to speed the process up.
How do I remove timing belt? Do I need to hold cams or lock them in place before doing so.
Been so long Iíve forgotten
I installed the BSE kit when I built the motor, so I wonít need to order that stuff, but new timing pulleys and a tensioner + new belt + water pump is a must at least correct?. Motor only has 7000 miles on it but it sat for 10 years.
Should I do the front case gasket or ofh gasket while down there?
As for the HG do I order the OEM organic one?
I read a lot of people suggest the composite one, is that the organic one, or the same as the felt HG?
I know I donít want to use the metal Hg as the block isnít being decked, correct?
Or should I go for it considering this block only has 7000 on it and I had it decked then.
Iíve got arp head studs installed Iíll be reusing.
