Maybe I am stupid lol but I can't figure out how to pull my timing chain on my 318.
puller helps , you can make your own
To pull the crank shaft sprocket?
Once you have the Dampner and cover off they just slide off. I used a little pry bar and pushed them off by moving them a little at a time and keeping them. Move one and then the other so they come off together.
There ya go! John to the resccue. ;) I've had some tuffy parts. A screwdriver on each side and jerking the drivers in a scissor fashion hleped slide it ogg. A tap with a hammer to "Shock it" can help loosen it up. Don't wack it to hard now.
guys, he didnt ask for a solution, he was just letting you know :finga:
Before banging/prying/pulling on anything, don't forget to remove the fuel pump eccentric...
My stock reply is, keep taking bolts out until the part you want falls off - how hard can it be? In this case, use a puller on the crank sprocket if you can't get it to slide off.
I was trying that and couldn't get it... but I finally got it late last night... When all else fails, use a 2x4 and a chevy tool (Hammer) lol. I ran into another problem though, when torquing the main crankshaft bearings down, I broke one of the mounts... DAMN lol, now I am on the search for a replacement part.
You broke a main cap?? Never saw that happen in 30 yrs. of wrenching. Must have had a object under it. You've created a huge problem there cause main caps are specific to the engine because they are align honed as a unit. You can't just slap a main cap from another engine on it and expect things to be straight.
"Houston, We've Had a Problem" .....
So I would have to take an entire crank from another engine?
Not unless you broke the crank. If I understand what you wrote you are meaning you broke a main bearing cap. Is that correct? If so the cap goes with the block. When the block is bare the machine shop bolts all the main caps on and torques them down then align hones it as an assy. If you use a main cap off another engine you need to totally disassemble the engine and take it to a machine shop and have it align honed with the new cap or it won't be straight and will trash the bearings and crank pretty quick.
