It's strange, everything went well for me and I did not finish anything.

AYYYYYYEEEEEEEEE. It's time to replace everything on the timing side thanks to an oil leak from the pump rolleyes.gif



Hopefully everything will be in by Monday or Tuesday and I can get the show on the road by Thursday. It shouldn't take me more than a few hours since I just replaced my water pump with a spare one over the summer.
What's nice though is RockAuto sells a like OEM Aisin kit, so I bought that with the full water pump assembly, belt, idlers, and some gaskets. Also bought the Timken crank seal, Timken camshaft seal, a seal and gasket for the oil pump as well, and spent more money on some from Toyota... I'll have extra stuff laying around just in case.

Everything timing side of the engine is replace and HOLY SH!T, I DON'T HAVE ANY LEAKS FOR ONCE.
It's a miracle because I've had leaks since first owning my old one laugh.gif

Actually, that is a lie, my exhaust is leaking now so I ordered a new front and mid section :facepalm:
Hopefully this will be the end of having to replace stuff for a little while.

I solved the leak, but it's a temporary fix till the parts come in...

Ewwww, that pipe looks like it's been on the ocean floor. I remember the one reason I like living down south all of a sudden.

That's just irresponsible, the redline is at 6,200.

Well the top portion was welded by Lou's so it doesn't really last that long... will be coating everything before it goes back on.

@Cheela, I'll get that video for you soon wink.gif

Well it's been a while again, quick update.

Will be getting to removing the poly bushings in the spring once I get new summer tires for the car, would only make sense to get an alignment after doing everything.

Ceramic coated the exhaust that went on, but it all started flaking off rolleyes.gif I don't know what happened. I sanded, primed, base, and clear on it, yes all of which were for ceramic coating. The exhaust is a few inches short so it's all super tight right now, need to make and add a spacer in there on the flex to mid pipes.

Rot in the rockers is starting to get a little bad, and one spot on the floor pan by the front PS subframe mount, cutting and welding in new pieces of metal in the spring.
Filled it all with black RTV sealant for now laugh.gif

And I guess one cool thing in the works that should on the car in a week or so cwm13.gif
