aaaand, it's purring like a kitten! Thanks so much to Andrew for
hooking me up with what appears to be a NOS harmonic balancer!
And thanks to all for the hand-holding crank during crank seal
Timing is advanced to 1.03, oooh it sounds nice. Hoping since it's an
eco it won't get too hot there.
ALMOST has a catastrophe. While running the engine to warm it up before
retorquing the head studs the intermediate shaft pulley unscrewed
itself. I heard a metallic scratching sound and was wondering if the
screws I put in the harmonic balancer were too long, but no - just the
int. shaft pulley eating its way through the lower plastic timing belt
Will in Alaska.
