  1. Hemi, I was in Manchester CT today, thought about you when I passed by this.
  2. Thanks, just right at the full line, I'll leave it be. good luck with your head rebuild, its looking good. thx.
  3. Driving great! purring smooth. Thanks to everyone! Checking Engine oil on dipstick, right on the high mark, should I drain some out or leave it alone? Thanks, Peter
  4. No apologies, Thanks for your help and concern, will know more on Friday.
  5. Hi Hemi, I dont understand, all the marks are lined up, I removed the valve cover to confirm that I could pin/lock the cams just to make sure. put everything back in place and runs smooth, sounds ok. A slight mysterious rev of the RPM's every minute or so. what are you seeing that looks wrong, the only thing that I notice is that the cam lobes are not completely on there heals? I appreciate your scrutiny, and of course want to get this right. Thanks, Peter
  6. I'll have to take a close look and a picture next trip to my car, about an hour away. Thanks I did order the cam tensioning tool should have it on Friday
  7. Soo, just got back, you guys are great. took the upper TB cover off , much better but still squealing a little. took the plunge and took of all accessory belts, removed the main crank pully to make life easier. backed off the tensioner and no more noise, but the timing belt is traveling towards the 1 cylinder and almost rubbing on the valve cover. Backed off the tensioner even more thinking it would correct but no. Backed it off almost dangerously loose and still off centered on the cam sprockets? What am I possibly missing? what drives the timing belt to be centered on the cam pulley's? I was so excited to drive it home tonight, but Christmas will come another day, soon i hope. much thanks as always, peter
  8. thanks so much! I will take a very deep look into it tomorrow and will not push on the road till I'm confident i wont hurt her.
  9. no, sorry Hemi, I dont have all the special tools, went old school and cranked it down, but considering I could barely get a wrench on it with some leverage, I would be surprised if its too tight. I'm really thinking / hoping it's the timing belt cover. Thanks for your concern. Peter
  10. Thank Guys, Sorry no feedback from my end recently, had to move from my condo to a new house the beginning of July and I hate moving, I think everyone does. Started the 16V last week sounds ok, got a code 24, cleaned up the connection and codes went away, one odd vacuum hose to to the right of the Turbo into the firewall is broken, will fix that tomorrow. A little whining noise, I believe the timing belt is rubbing on the cheap plastic cover that was compromised when I took it off, did the best with JB weld ? it will fix itself, hopefully. Plan on driving it home on Friday, will keep you posted, Thanks everyone for ALL the help. Peter
  11. A little late, almost back together, planning on turning it over Friday, that's what I said two months ago. Do these timing marks look OK? more concerned about the cam marks, I believe they are supposed to be very slightly below the top of the head, these are about even with it. also, a quick question, who made the 16V block ( i should know this) THANKS Peter
  12. Thanks Reaper, I'll take a look at the two other options you suggested but hoping another member might come up with something, hopefully starting the engine by Friday.
  13. thanks, front end, turbo replacement, right wheel assembly, drive shaft, new seals, had to take every thing out to get to the turbo. coolant and oil lines, air intake and vacuum lines. exhaust. everything almost back together, but that part has me concerned. maybe it doesnt even belong to this project??
  14. Anyone know what or were this part goes on my 16 valve. That's what happens when a project drags out for five months. any help is appreciated, thanks. pesd
  15. Thanks Reaper, Wise advise, hoping on getting it back on the road before Memorial day weekend and will keep all my helpful friends posted. PESD
